Welcome to the Maritime Golden Retriever Club

Welcome to the website of the Maritime Golden Retriever Club.The main purpose of our club is to promote the interest for the Golden Retriever and to maintain the health and standard of the breed.

Originally developed as waterdogs to retrieve waterfowl, it continues to be one of the most intelligent and versatile dogs, with an instinctive love of water. A large breed dog, it requires grooming, lots of outdoor exercise in a secure area because of its instincts as a hunting dog and its tendency to roam.

Because of their versatility, you can find Golden Retrievers in many roles to include:  guide dogs for the blind, hearing dogs for the deaf, search and rescue dogs, hunt dogs, show dogs, and most importantly because of their loyal, gentle temperaments, companion family pets.

Our Club caters to all Golden Retrievers including working, show and especially companion family pets. Within this site, you will find key information and activities. We trust you will enjoy your visit and not hesitate to contact us for any additional information you may need.
