Health Testing Designation

Drawing by Harrison Weir (1824-1906)  The anecdote I am now about to give is from the pen of the Rev. J.E. Atkinson, a good and scientific naturalist:  "Walking with a favorite Newfoundland dog of great size, one frosty day, I observed the animal's repeated disappointment on putting his head down, with the intention to drink, at sundry ice-covered pools. After one of these disappointments, I broke the ice with my foot, for my thirsty companion's behoof. The next time it seemed good to the dog to try and drink, instead of waiting for me to break the ice as before, he set his own huge paw forcibly on the ice, and, with a little effort, obtained water for himself."  From: Rev. R.O. Morris, B.A. Dogs and Their Doings. N.Y., Harper & Bros, 1872, p. 16f.  (reprinted from NewfTide 1976)

TOD & TODD Newfoundlands

Recognition for Those Who Post Test Results

For many years, the NCA, by policy, has supported the concept of posting health test results—both positive and negative—in an open database. Now the NCA will provide special recognition to those members who do so in the hope that it will inspire and motivate more people to do it.

The designation of TOD (Health Tested Open Database) is for any dog, living or dead, for which the test results for hips, elbows, cystinuria, and heart (evaluated by a board-certified cardiologist) have been posted in an openly accessible database.

An additional designation—TODD—will be awarded to any dog that meets the above criteria AND has submitted its DNA to the AKC DNA Repository.

Please remember that this award is given to dogs for which the tests’ results are posted, not given just to dogs who clear or pass all of these tests.
