Promoting Happy, Healthy, Hard-Working Labradors
Through Experience, Education and Expertise.
Northumberland and Durham Labrador Retriever Club
was founded in 1923 and first registered with the Kennel Club Ltd. in January 1925.
(Brief history of the club can be found here)
We are proud to be the second oldest Labrador Club in existence; celebrating our 90th Anniversary in 2013 and founded in a year when:
the Flying Scotsman went into service,
Prince Albert (George VI) married
Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon,
Stanley Baldwin became Prime Minister,
and some very enterprising gundog enthusiasts of the day; formed the origins of
Northumberland and Durham Labrador Retriever Club.
We have a growing membership who are representative of Working, Show and Labrador owners in general.
We are committed to promoting the breed to help ensure long term health by providing advice on everything from puppy buying to working or showing your dog.
The club organises Open and Championship Shows, Field Trials, Working Tests and occasional Seminars and Training Days.
As you would imagine, the club has extensive archive records which are being uploaded to the website in our Archive Section over time, for all to enjoy.
