About Me


My name is Nancy Elaine Ward  (NEWPoint), and I reside in Pearland, TX.  I completed my PhD studies and graduated from the University of Texas Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. I currently work as a laboratory scientist at AM Biotechnologies located in Houston, TX (www.thioaptamer.com). 


I am a member of the Houston Obedience Training Dog Club, Inc. (see LINKS page) for whom I am a tracking, agility, rally, novice, puppy, and basic obedience instructor.  I am also a member of the Gulf Coast German Shorthaired Pointer Club (see LINKS page).


I began actively training dogs in 1994, and since then my dogs, and others I have shown, have earned 253titles including 76 obedience titles, 11 tracking titles, 42 agility titles, 23 hunting/water titles, 31 canine good citizens and 70 breed titles. In addition, dogs that NEWPoint has produced have earned 79 titles including 14 obedience titles, 13 agility titles, 12 hunting/water titles, 9 canine good citizens and 26 breed titles. I truly enjoy training and showing dogs. I was the President of the Houston Obedience Training Dog Club for the 2008-2009, and 2009-2010 years. I received the HOT Dog Club’s Good Sportsman Award for the years 1999-2000 and 2007-2008, was Training Director for the 2004-2005 year and the 2009-2010 year, and was the Gulf Coast German Shorthaired Pointer Club's Sportsman of the Year for 2006.


Through the years, I have had a variety of dogs, but currently the only dogs I have are German Shorthaired Pointers (with one Labrador Retriever thrown in).  I obtained my first GSP in 1996 from Caijoy GSPs, and then later added three of my breed GSPs from Ehrenvogel Shorthairs .   Learn more about all of my dogs, their breeding, and accomplishments under ABOUT THE DOGS.  My dogs are routinely cared for by Dr. Julie Wickel and the great veterinarians at Claws & Paws Veterinary Hospital (see LINKS page), Dr. Jackie Doval (Chiropractic)(see LINKS page), Dr. Happy Babbish (Acupuncture) and Ken Bain (Massage Therapist).
