Welcome to Central Scotland and where like minded people gather together in fresh clean air environments to compete in an ancient and healthy sport almost as old as the hills themselves. It's where mankind's best four-legged and intelligent friend prove their speed, agility and understanding between man and his working canine colleague. These are working dogs chosen for inherent intelligence and wisdom rather than fashionable appearance and often ready in even the worst of weather conditions!
Our club has been operational since 2012 and achieved Kennel Club registration in 2014. The Caledonian Retriever Club was initially created to offer high quality opportunities to people of all ages and experience levels, who wish to be involved in a traditional field sport, at their leisure or at competition level.
The club has been providing events and training classes for the last three years and these have helped many newcomers of all ages to gain knowledge and experience on how the field sports events operate and offer insight into many differing aspects of the sport. In our combined view it is vitally important that, for our sport to flourish, the standards of knowledge and conduct in all countryside events must continually improve. The introduction, induction and education of a younger generation are thus important components of maintaining rural countryside life and living.
Joining our club means gaining experience in all aspects of dog training, field sport management, and offers quality opportunities to gain experience in all areas of the sport, whether for fun or in serious competition. Our heartland within the Scottish regions means ready access to lands ideally presenting the kind of challenges favoured by many. Our club organises several tests, trials, and meetings
News of planned events, results, organisational structure and rules are presented within this website. Membership forms, trial applications and more can be downloaded from this website too to ease administration. Sadly, we can't as yet, accept email submissions, applications and online fees although these might be additional features in the future.
In closing, we hope you'll browse around our web pages and gain some appreciation of what we do. Contact us if you're unsure of anything that we may have failed to explain adequately or in sufficient detail. We're looking forward to meeting with you soon!
