If this is your first time to a dog show, and if you would like to know more about what is happening in the ring, ask a member ringside. (Or a volunteer at the club’s raffle/catalog table will help you spot a member who can help you.) Everyone is always willing to explain to newcomers.  Welcome!

IN APPRECIATION in 2020: Thank you to all of the PRLRC members who contributed to making 2020’s Back-to Back specialty another successful show for our exhibitors.  The club appreciates our exhibitors for braving the year’s challenge and attending the show.  We all have were grateful to for our judges who managed a very trying time and making the  effort to come to us to judge the show.                                                                             

Much appreciation from all of the club members to the WC organizing crew, and we are sure also from all of you who were able to attend the club’s Working Certificate event.   We hope everyone had a great day!

 
Special thanks to all of the hard working PRLRC members who make our Back-to-Back Conformation dog show specialties, Working Certificate event, and all our events such enjoyable events for exhibitors, quests and members alike..

The club also offers a Labrador Retriever Conformation, Obedience and Rally Winter match. The event is usually held in March. Check with Corr. Sec. Jack Gordon for more details.

PRLRC supports the North Stonington Agricultural Fair and an opportunity to connect with the general public by participating in a demonstration on Friday, in July.  Thank you, to all of the members who participated in making this a crowd pleasing event.

We hope to introduce you to our versatile breed within these pages.

Originally our breed was described as a  “water dog”, and subsequently used for retrieving felled water and upland game birds for the hunter. The Labrador today retains the same qualities of yesterday but also has become the countries favorite companion “family” dog. Whether you are looking for a pet for your family, a hunting partner, or perhaps a Therapy working dog,  Labradors are the perfect choice.
