The Newfoundland Club of America, Inc. Board of Directors and
the Technical Resources Committee are very pleased to bring to you
the NCA online database. Although long in happening, we are extremely pleased
that the database as it now exists. Containing over 33,000 records and encompassing dogs from the turn of the century to the present day the database makes a wonderful tool not only
for NCA members but for Newf lovers everywhere.
|What You Will Find in the Database
Pedigrees: (in two formats) the normal
pedigree format with background colors for each generation and a
format used for downloading the pedigree into different publications.
This format is used for the Annual of Titlists and Newf Tide
Information: the following information
is available for all dogs:
Registered Name and Registering Body,
Call Name, Country of Origin
Owner, Breeder, Date of Birth, Sire, Dam
Titles, including title date and
Health data, clearances available
The database is easy to navigate. Every dog in the database has a dog id #.
You might want to write your dogs id#'s down and keep them for
reference. Otherwise you can access a dog by registration name,
registration number, call name or even by Date of Birth. You do not
need to enter all the dogs registered name, just a portion will do.
I have found that it is easier not to pull up a dog by their kennel
name because of the apostrophe used and then sometimes not used in
registered names. For the hypothetical dog name "Brook's Baby Doll
Bear", I would use Baby Doll. If you have any problem navigating
through the database, please let us know
|We Need Your Help!
Our data is not complete. You will
find that some award dates are missing, also, owner names and
breeder names are missing in some cases. Some pedigrees are not complete through four
generations. There also may be data that is incorrect. We will
accept corrections and missing data from the owner or breeder of the
dog. Corrections and missing data must have confirmation attached.
A copy of the dog's registration or a copy of the dog's award
certificate is the best item to send. The confirmation must include
the data you are correcting or inserting. If you are able to help
supply missing data or correct existing data go to "Contact Us"
and select the form that relates to the data you are correcting or
sending. A "New Dog Form" is for a dog that is not in the
database. But, please remember that only dogs that have received an
award such as a Championship or an Obedience or Working Title are
included in the database. This will also follow for dogs in their
This is the launch of Phase I of the NCA Database. We will move
on to Phase II when the existing data is as robust and error-free as possible.
The features of Phase II are still being finalized, so it would be very helpful to us for you to go to
the Comments section of the database site or email us and let us know what you would like to see included in future releases.
