Atlanta Retriever Club, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the training, hunting, competing, and breeding of all AKC recognized retriever breeds. Our club objectives are:


  • Encourage the use of trained retrievers while hunting, thereby preserving game;
  • Encourage and promote the breeding of pure-bred retrievers, and do all possible to bring their natural qualities to perfection;
  • Urge members and breeders to accept the standards of the retriever breeds as approved by the American Kennel Club as the only standards of excellence by which retrievers shall be judged;
  • Protect and advance the interest of the retriever breeds by encouraging sportsmanlike competition at field trials and hunt tests; and
  • Conduct sanctioned and licensed field trials and hunt tests under the rules and regulations of the American Kennel Club.

Our club has a very diverse membership of retriever enthusiasts, including field trialers, hunt testers, breeders, professional trainers, and amateur trainers and handlers.  We are proud of the accomplishments of our club members, many of which have qualified and placed at National events and have attained multiple FC, AFC, and MH titles.  Almost all of our members came into the club as new participants with a lot to learn.  If you donít happen to know a lot about retrievers, thatís okay - we all started at some point, knowing very little about the wonders of retrievers.  We welcome you, your family, and your retrievers! 

Atlanta Retriever Club, Inc. is a licensed club of the American Kennel Club, Inc. (AKC) and a member of the National Retriever Club, Inc. (NRC), National Amateur Retriever Club, Inc. (NARC), and Master National Retriever Club, Inc. (MNRC).  For more information about these organizations, click on the images below.
