Draft Work

The basic definition of drafting is the act of pulling a cart or wagon. (And “carting” is often used interchangeably.)

The goal of draft work is to show how beautifully Newfs and their humans can work as a team. A great performance displays control while highlighting the Newfs natural abilities and independence.

Specialty carting is a great beginning event for new draft teams. The titles that a team can earn range from DD (Draft Dog), to DDX (Advanced Draft Dog) or TDD (Team Draft).

Our club members hold practices in multiple areas in Texas several times throughout the year. Come join us for drafting fun!
