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.
We celebrated out CENTENARY in 2023.
We are proud to be the second oldest Labrador Club in existence; celebrating our 100th Anniversary in 2023 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.
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.
