2012 was the 50th Anniversary of the LIGRC.

Since 1962 our goal has been to promote one of America's favorite dog breeds. Our members participate in agility, breed conformation, field, obedience, rally and/or tracking. If you love your Golden and are interested in doing more with your dog we encourage you to join us.

About Golden Retrievers

For years the Golden Retriever has been one of America's best loved dogs. The Golden is a sporting dog found in the field; and at agility, obedience, rally trials, tracking events and the show ring.

Goldens are outside dogs. From their beginnings as field dogs in the Highlands of Scotland they were always part of the outdoors. Their thick double coat was developed to withstand the harsh Highland winters and rigors of cold streams and thick brush. They require exercise and activity to keep them busy and fit. They love doing simple things such as going for walks in the woods or the beach. While Goldens love being with people, they think there is nothing wrong with finding a puddle or a mud hole to roll in and then come home soaking wet or covered in mud with a big smile that says, Love Me!

Puppy singles stake- short singles with dead birds (or bumpers) for inexperienced, or very young dogs. Dog can be held by collar, but should bring the bird back to handler, like WC rules - does not have to deliver to hand. To compete for the ribbon, dog must retrieve bird, not a bumper.
These are purely marking stakes designed to showcase the dog ' s natural marking ability. Having to handle on the mark will result in disqualification. Throwers will be wearing white like a field trial or WC situation, Handlers can wear white if they choose. Each level competition will receive ribbons for 1st place thru 4th place and JAMS.
