COUNTDOWN TO THE SPRING SPECIALTY
The Labrador breed was originally developed to retrieve game for the hunter. Many dogs love to retrieve.
The Labrador is a very versatile breed – family companion, hunting partner, helper dogs for the disabled, detector dogs for the military and law enforcement, and capable of competing with the best in many different venues.
In addition to spring and fall specialty shows, the LRCP also hosts retriever hunt tests, obedience and rally trials, CGC and Trick Dog testing, plus informal matches.
