Welcome

Welcome To The NCNE

We are so excited you have stopped by to check out our club!  We love Newfoundlands.  We hope you will check out our site and look into coming to one of our many events.  We offer opportunities for people who love Newfs to gain experience, share experience and have lots of fun!  Check back often.  We have a very robust calendar of events year round for every aspect of Newfie love!



 

The premium for the NCNE Winter Draft Tests (DD/TDD and BDD only) is now posted on the NCA website and on NCNE social media.  They will be held Mar 9 & 10 in Woodford VT (just outside Bennington).  The opening for entries is Jan 2 (NCA members) and 12 (non-members).  We are allowing other breeds if the tests do not fill; the test is limited to 12 each day.

We will also be looking for stewards if you may not have a dog ready and still want to attend.

Please share this with folks you know who might be interested.

Let the test chair Sue Mendleson know if you have any questions.  nff@fairpoint.net

We are SO looking forward to this event .  Think snow!

NCA/NCNE Support Cruciate Ligament Rupture Study 5 years and older dogs with healthy knees are needed!!!

Cruciate Ligament Rupture Study (Dr. Peter Muir and researchers at University of Wisconsin - Madison School of Veterinary Medicine, Comparative Genetics and Orthopaedic Research Laboratory.) is looking for x-rays of knees from dogs without known knee problems.

NCNE will cover the cost of X-rays and is looking for several dogs to participate. The dogs must be 5 years and older. Pedigrees must be available to share with the researchers. The study is to develop a genetic test to determine the genetic risk of developing cruciate ligament rupture in Newfoundlands. It is supported by Newfoundland Club of America, Charitable Trust, but needs more dogs to participate. The laboratory has already developed and is offering a test for Labrador Retrievers.

If you would like to participate in the study, please contact Kikuko Chang (snowhavennewf@gmail.com) for more information.
You can find more about this study based on Labradors at https://www.vetmed.wisc.edu/lab/corl/canine-genetic-testing/ and https://www.vetmed.wisc.edu/new-genetic-test-identifies-dogs-risk-
