Welcome to the

 The Northern Golden Retriever Association Website

The Northern Golden Retriever Association’s area covers the North of England from Lincolnshire across to Cheshire and up to the Scottish Border.

We hold a Championship Show  usually in the Newark area  in April.

We also hold an Open Breed Show which is normally held in conjunction with the April Show.

Four or Five  field trials including a twenty four dog Open Qualifying breed stake the winner being sent through to the Retriever Championship.

We also cater for handlers wishing to train their gundogs for working tests and field trials. This task is undertaken by the Pennine Training Area who hold training classes and working tests in the Pennine and surrounding areas. For details click on the button.

The  Association seeks to encourage the breeding of Golden Retrievers of a dual-purpose type.
