Welcome to the Cuyahoga Valley Golden Retriever Club!
CVGRC is a member club of the Golden Retriever Club of America and is licensed by the American Kennel Club. Our Members are golden retriever owners, breeders, exhibitors, trainers, and judges. The majority of our members are located in north and central Ohio and suburban Cleveland and Akron areas. While most of our members are located in Ohio, we do have members all over Ohio, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Indiana. Together, we sponsor club activities that range from educational to competitive to down-right fun! CVGRC also publishes a newsletter, sponsors this website, has a Facebook page, and holds bi-monthly membership and board meetings.
Our major events include a Hunt test and regional Specialty (with Greater Pittsburgh Golden Retriever Club) in June, multiple Agility trials per year, and WC/WCX test in the September. In addition, we hold regular CCAs (Certificate of Conformation Assessment), CGC (Canine Good Citizen) testing, attend Pet Expos, host multiple Health Clinics, hold special seminars, have holiday parties and picnics! We also hosted the Golden Retriever Club of America (GRCA) National Specialty September 1-14th, 2022.
