CCLRC is comprised of a group of dog enthusiasts who share the joy of ownership (and wet-nose) of what we believe to be the world’s greatest dog breed, the Labrador Retriever. Our club was started in 2004 and we continue to grow in membership and exposure to the public. The CCLRC serves Fresno, Madera, Kings and Tulare Counties, but welcomes members from throughout the state.
CCLRC supports events which educate the public about the multi-purpose Labrador Retriever and permit Labrador owners to experience their versatility, including waterfowl and upland gamebird hunting, assistance/support dog work, tracking, agility and competitive conformation and obedience eventing. The CCLRC’s values include promoting quality breeding of Labrador Retrievers in accordance with the standard of the breed, as approved by the Labrador Retriever Club, Inc. (LRC) and the American Kennel Club (AKC). The breed standard describes both the physical appearance and movement of the Labrador and also its famously congenial temperament. We encourage responsible breeding through our Breeder’s Code of Ethics. We promote responsible ownership practices and strive to reduce the number of Labradors without homes or in shelters. We support the AKC Code of Good Sportsmanship.
CCLRC promotes the preservation the versatile Labrador Retriever with a sound temperament and excellent health.
