In AKC Conformation the judge compares each newfoundland to the breed standard, the written description for the breed. The dog and bitch that "conform" best to the Standard in the Judge's opinion that day are awarded Championship Points. The number of points awarded are based upon the number of newfoundlands entered in each sex.

The OWNC holds a Supported Entry 1-2 times each year. For more information see our Events Listing.
