PWDCNC is delighted to announce that we have been awarded a grant of $2000 by Good, whose mission is to promote responsible and ethical dog breeding and to improve the health and well-being of our canine friends.

At our Regional Specialty in Napa on November 12, 2021, PWDCNC will have a Health Tent, providing testing via PennGen (JDCM, Microphthalmia) and Wisdom Health/Optimal Selection (PRA, EOPRA, GM-1, Improper Coat) and DNA analysis through AKC. The Good Dog grant monies will be applied to discounts on these tests.

More information on the testing and procedures will be provided by PWDCNC e-blasts throughout the summer. If you would like to ensure participation early, please contact Julie Conger ([email protected]) so that we can get a reasonable estimate of how many dogs will be tested.

Several PWDCNC breeders are already members of Good Dog and we encourage you to view the website and in particular the section on Standards and Screening. We are honored to receive this grant and by the recognition we received in the granting document: “We are so inspired by your efforts and honored to support you as you make the world a better place for our dogs and the people who love them.”
