Please mark your calendars. HANC will be hosting back-to-back  NCA Draft Tests and Advanced Draft Tests on Saturday and Sunday, November 4 and 5, 2018. This is a great opportunity to earn a carting title on your dog. We'll have some practice sessions prior to the event to help beginners get started. If you already have a DD title on your dog, you can shoot for a DDX title at the Advanced Draft Test which will be offered both days.
Our judges for the test will be long-time HANC member Gary Walker as well as Annalyn Paz from Texas. Following the NCA tests both days, HANC will conduct All-Breed Draft Tests for any breed of dog, as well as mixed-breed dogs.
It takes a lot of people to put on a draft test. Please consider volunteering to help. We'll need lots of stewards to run the test, including some to walk the 1-mile freight haul at least once per day. Experience is not required. Stewarding a test is a great way to learn about carting with your dog. We will also need other volunteers, besides stewards, to help with the test.
For more information about an NCA draft test, visit Follow the working dog link. Please see the attached draft test premium list for  details about the test and entry forms. If you can volunteer to work the test or if you have questions, please contact Test Chair, Marty Swindell at

Volunteers, we need you!!! You do not have to be a member to volunteer! This is a great opportunity to come out and see Newfoundlands performing Draft Work! HANC members, please volunteer to help with our Draft Tests, your experience is needed to help new members and potential members learn about the breed and club events. 

We need lots of help (setup, hospitality, freight haul  stewards, and are very grateful to all those who volunteer to help put on our club events. ​​
