A very warm welcome to the new Midland Golden Retriever Club Web Site.
We are one of 13 UK breed clubs and we are dedicated to all aspects of the Golden Retriever. We were founded in 1976 and have around 200 members, many from the centre of England but many members from all areas of the UK and overseas.
Midland Golden Retriever Club aims to support those who own the breed, or are considering owning a Golden Retriever.
We organise one Open Dog show and one Championship Dog Show every ear where you can exhibit you dog for conformation, or come along to watch and find out more about the world of show dogs.
There is an active working section which runs training classes for all levels, and competitive working events.
Midland Golden Retriever Club runs an educational seminar most years, in the past we have covered topics such as; all aspects of Golden Retriever Judges training, grooming and trimming, first aid for dogs, How to handle your stud dog, The Three E’s’ Ectopic Ureter, Epilepsy and Eyes and How To Have a Healthy Dog by Catherine O’Driscoll of Canine Health Concern. Our next seminar will be in 2016.
Social events run by the club have included the Contest of Champions, Pup of the Year and match meetings with other breeds in the Midlands areas.
The club has an active rescue which does a sterling job in finding new homes for Golden Retrievers when, for whatever reason, they can no longer stay in their home.
We also have a puppy register to put you in touch with reputable breeders who abide to the code of conduct set by the club. We also offer advice about puppy purchasing and what care a Golden Retriever needs.
We are very involved in Discover Dogs which is run by the Kennel Club. They run several events through the year, which is a fantastic opportunity for visitors to meet, greet and discover over 200 different breeds of dog, learn all about the distinctive personalities, traits and looks of each breed, and how to buy the perfect canine partner. Midland Golden Retriever Club co-ordinates the Golden Retriever section at Crufts.
We take an active role in the Golden Retriever Breed Council where we represent our members and collaborate with all the other member clubs on matters affecting the breed.

All our events are open to Members and Non Members so we look forward to meeting you at some of our events.
