ABOUT THE CNC

petfiesta322x186_orig.jpg

Founded in 1987, The Colonial Newfoundland Club (CNC) provides a place for brand new and experienced Newfoundland Dog owners to get together.  We share problems, ideas and social events that include our members’ human and canine families.
 
Our wonderful Newfoundland dogs are happy doing lots of different activities—as long as they are by your side.  Whether watching TV together on the couch or teaching your Newf to tow a boat during a water trial—the Colonial Newfoundland Club will be your resource for fun and educational connections.
 
As we all begin to emerge from pandemic restrictions, one of Colonial’s 2022 objectives is to have more get togethers that are fun for CNC members and their dogs.
