Breed clubs exist to support the preservation and protection of the purebred dog, establish a breed standard and maintain a code of ethics as a guideline for responsible breeding and ownership. The Newfoundland Club of America as a parent breed club acts as a protector of the Newfoundland breed and is responsible for the breed's standard of perfection. The NCA also oversees the operation of the Newfoundland Club of America Charitable Trust.
Regional Breed Clubs are a great source of information for all and a valuable resource providing local networking opportunities not available otherwise. A Breed Club consists of members with a wide range of backgrounds, education and experience lending themselves as mentors to all lovers of the breed. Regional Clubs also promote the historic qualities of the dog by sponsoring working dog activities under the rules established by the Newfoundland Club of America.
