NCA National Specialty

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: DEADLINE APRIL 1: It’s almost time for the NCA National Specialty!
NCA Nationals are rapidly approaching! One very special event will be the Opening Ceremony on Tuesday, May 1 at 4 pm. This ceremony highlights the network of NCA regional clubs and the work they do on a local level to carry out the goals and programs of the Newfoundland Club of America.
The Opening Ceremony Special Coordinator this year is Kevin Schmidke. Please contact Kevin at and register to participate in this wonderful event. He will be coordinating set up and start times and locations so we look our best.

Please make the Opening Ceremonies a MUST DO on your Nationals priority list and come celebrate our club and it’s amazing members and accomplishments. Deadline to order is APRIL 1 so don’t delay!!

Research project University of Pennsylvania veterinary school online survey

Dear Officers and Board of the Newfound Club of America and Regional Club Representatives,

I am writing to ask for your help with Dr. Hess and my research project at the University of Pennsylvania veterinary school. We need many thousands of dog owners to complete our short 5 minute online survey (details included in the link) at:

Any and ALL dog owners can complete the survey, regardless of health status and whether the dog has diabetes.

We were wondering if you would be able to extend this survey to your members (via email to group lists) and/or post the link onto your website. Posting and sharing our link on social media is strongly encouraged to reach the general dog owner population (and Newfoundland Dogs across America!). We have been fortunate enough to receive support from the AKC and other breed clubs, whom are promoting the survey to their members and on their websites.

Every dog is valuable to this study and your assistance would be immensely appreciated by us (and dogs alike!). Please let me know if you can help. Thank you very much!

– Dr. Stephen Cai and Dr. Rebecka Hess
