The Golden Retriever Club of Victoria

Welcome to our club


In 2017 the Golden Retriever Club of Victoria Inc. celebrated 50 successful years.  The club is an organisation of members whose

shared aim is to promote and encourage interest in the Golden Retriever and to maintain the best features of the breed. 

The Golden Retriever Club of Victoria was formed in 1967 and has grown from small beginnings to a membership spread throughout

Australia and the world. 


The Golden Retriever Club of Victoria is affiliated with DOGS Victoria (The Victorian Canine Association Inc.) which represents the 

owners and breeders ofpurebred dogs in Victoria.  DOGS Victoria is a member of the Australian National Kennel Council (ANKC)

which is the national body for canine affairs in Australia.  The club is also a member of the National Golden Retriever Council which

promotes quality breeding and care, training and exhibition of the Golden Retriever.

Club Events

During a typical year, the club conducts a Championship Show, an Open Show, two Retrieving Trials, an Obedience Trial, a Tracking

Trial, general meetings and social events.  You are welcome to attend any meeting or event conducted by the club, however, an

exhibitor at club events is required to be a member of DOGS Victoria.

Membership Benefits

Our newsletter, Guns N Sashes, is provided to members by email (posted copies only if the member has no internet access). It

includes articles of interest to Golden Retriever owners and details of club events.   The newsletter along with occasional emails

provide the main link between the club and its members.

This website is also an important source of information for the public and club members.  It includes a wealth of information on the

Golden Retriever and the club including photos and results of past club events.

New members and visitors are welcome to attend our general meetings.  Details of the date and venue of these meetings are

published in the newsletter.
