Welcome to the Heart of America Newfoundland Club, also known as HANC. We are a gathering of people from Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Iowa (and a few other states) who live with and-or love Newfoundland Dogs. Within this website, we offer information pertaining to our Club and many activities we pursue with our dogs.




DATE: May 18 & 19, 2019

LOCATION: Kemper Outdoor Education Center.

Please join HANC for our 2019 Draft Tests on Saturday and Sunday, May 18 and 19 at the Kemper Outdoor Education Center in Blue Springs MO. We offer an NCA Draft Test (DD), an NCA Advanced Draft Test (DDX) and an all-breed test both days. Our judges are Mark Iken and Karrie Cook. For details, see our Premium List. It includes deadlines, entry forms, schedules and contacts.
You have plenty of time to get your dog ready for the test. HANC will be offering multiple training practices this winter and springs in the Kansas City area. Please consider volunteering to work the tests. We are in need of Stewards, as well as help for set-up, meals, the brown bag auction and the registration table.
Contact Test Chair, Marty Swindell with questions about the test or to volunteer. For more information about NCA Draft Tests, go to www.ncanewfs.org/working/draft/index.htm.
