NPD Safety Policy

The New-Pen-Del Board of Directors has established the following safety policy to be in effect for all club events:

  • All dogs must be on leash at all times.
  • Leashes must be no longer than six feet and may not be retractable.
  • When on leash, dogs must be under control at all times.
  • Dogs displaying uncontrolled or aggressive behavior may be asked to leave the event by the chairperson or any club officer.
  • A current rabies certificate must be furnished upon request of the event chairperson.
  • Failure to comply with the above may result in disciplinary action.
    There will be occasions when the event chairperson will permit dogs to be off-leash or on a retractable leash.

Effective: October 2001

* In addition to NPD’s Water Training at Blue Marsh Lake, Colonial Newfoundland Club is offering water training opportunities to NPD members.

Please see the websites listed below for detailed information.

NPD members wishing to participate at the following Colonial Newfoundland Club Open Swim Dates need to: Contact Dwight at if they plan to attend a practice session. While CNC reserves Codorus for both Saturday and Sunday, they typically train on just one of those days. Dwight will coordinate those who are training so they all arrive on the same day.

A CNC member MUST to be present at each session since CNC is the club listed on all the permission paperwork at Codorus.

Only CNC or NPD (as another regional club) should attend—no non CNC or NPD members—insurance related.

NPD member should understand these are not formal instruction sessions. All work together to train, steward for each other and resolve problems but we’re primarily working our own dogs—there is no “instructor.”
CNC typically has just one small boat so another boat that could be brought to the practice by NPD members would help out.

The New-Pen-Del Newfoundland Club encourages and promotes the purebred Newfoundland dog
