The National Retriever Club of Canada has member clubs across Canada.

These events are held under the Canadian Kennel Club Field Trial Rules and Regulations. Throughout the year, member clubs host their own Licensed Field Trials and/or Hunt Test Stakes.

  • The Retriever Results reporting system is up and running with results from the first 3 trials of the season already reported. Results are available on the NRCC website by choosing Field Trial / Field Trial Results from the left side menu. Click on the Blue Results opposite the trial you want to view. Select the stake you want to view results from. In addition, you can now track the top dogs, handlers, and kennels in Canada, and National Qualifiers with updated lists after each trial is reported.
    The workload has been greatly reduced for club secretaries as they are now able to create running orders, produce catalogs, and report results using one convenient database. To ensure the integrity of the database, it is important that entries are filled out correctly and the correct handler is reported for each stake. Please report any errors to so they can be corrected in the database.
