The Great Lakes Newfoundland Club wishes to welcome you and your family as owners or prospective owners of a Newfoundland dog.  While we are confident that you will discover your Newfoundland to be everything you should hope for as a gentle, devoted family pet, we think that you should know that owning a Newfoundland opens a new range of enjoyable and rewarding activities.  Some of these are AKC conformation competition, carting, obedience training and competition, water rescue training and trials, agility, backpacking and tracking,  The GLNC is an organization devoted to the development of the maximum potential of our dogs.  The Club sponsors educational programs and a variety of activities, such as fun matches, education days, draft tests, water tests and regional specialty dog shows.  The GLNC invites you to join us in our activities and call upon us if we can be of assistance to you.
