Established in 1946, the primary object of the Club is to encourage the breeding and type of Golden Retriever as laid down in the Breed Standard.

We continue to promote Working Ability and to achieve this aim the Field Trial Sub-committee is constantly alert to what is going on in the Field Trial World. Trials are held annually by the Club to encourage members throughout Great Britain to take part and endeavour to produce results that will be the envy of all other breeds.

Similar responsibilities are adopted by our Show Sub-committee, by publishing and submitting our Judges List to various canine societies, we attempt to give them a lead in their choice of a qualified judge.

Wherever possible, the Show Sub-committee examines the classification offered to us at shows and endevours to ensure that adequate classes are provided so that a general representation of the breed can have the opportunity of going forward. In the organisation of Championship and Open Shows annually, we offer a variety of competition levels for exhibitors.

We invite any owner of a Golden Retriever who seeks advice, information or any guidance whatsoever, to contact us and we will do all we can to provide a considered and accurate answer to any problem they may have.

Remember, the Club is not owned by anyone, it is formed by members who have the well-being and interest of all Golden Retrievers constantly at heart.

One can see, therefore, from these few remarks that the Golden Retriever Club of Scotland, through the office bearers and members of various committees and sub-committees, devotes a great deal of time, thought and experience in maintaining and developing through the above activities the inherent qualities of the Golden Retriever.

May we be of assistance to you?
