LCA Water Work 

The LCA awards Water Rescue titles for Water Dog (WD), Water Rescue Dog (WRD) and Water Rescue Dog Excellent (WRDX).
In 1997 the Leonberger Club of America received permission from the Newfoundland Club of America (NCA) to utilize the NCA official
water test requirements.

In May 2019, a formal LCA Water Work Program was adopted.
