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.
Our Members and Their Dogs Participate in all Types Activities
The members of the Pawcatuck River Labrador Retriever Club participate in all types of American Kennel Club events which include Conformation showing, Obedience, Rally Obedience trials, Agility, Tracking and Hunt Tests. We also have several members who use their dogs for Therapy work.
