The Newfoundland Club of Southern California (NCSC) was founded in 1969 by a group of Newfoundland owners who wished to promote the breed and do all possible to bring the Newfoundland Dog to perfection.

The NCSC adheres to and supports the Newfoundland standard as adopted by the Newfoundland Club of America (NCA), and all subsequent amendments thereto, as approved by the American Kennel Club, as the only standard of excellence by which the Newfoundland Dog shall be judged.

The Newfoundland Club of Southern California is a recognized regional club affiliated with the Newfoundland Club of America. Our geographical region includes Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, San Bernardino, Riverside, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and Kern counties. General and Board Meetings are held on a regular basis throughout our club area. The NCSC offers a variety of activities and opportunities for involvement. Whether your Newf is to be shown in conformation, participate in various working events, cherished as a family member, or all of the above, there are many ways to participate and volunteer. Your ideas and concerns are of great interest and value to the Club.

As a member of the NCSC, you will be part of a support network of caring people devoted to the Newfoundland breed who will share with you the good times as well as the difficult ones that come to those who are fortunate enough to be owned and loved by these truly wonderful dogs. The NCSC is here for you, ready and willing to share knowledge and experience.

Among the activities you and your dog can participate in are matches, specialty shows, obedience trials, water and draft training and tests, grooming seminars, fun picnics, swim parties, dog washes, Pet Expo, and Special Olympics, just to name a few.

The NCSC, in cooperation with the NCA, offers rescue and referral services. Newfs from animal shelters or relinquished by their owners are rescued, fostered in the homes of NCSC members, provided with all necessary veterinary care, and placed in approved adoptive homes for only a fee that covers medical and grooming expenses as determined by NCSC.  The NCSC assists prospective puppy buyers in contacting reliable breeders who adhere to guidelines established by the Newfoundland Club of America.

Our dues are nominal and include regular editions of our club newsletter Pawprints, as well as notices of all club activities. We also offer a junior membership for persons under 18 years of age.
