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!
