Welcome to the Golden Retriever Club of Illinois
UPDATE: Unfortunately we have had to cancel all events through the month of April. We are holding out hope that our June events will be held as planned but only time will tell. Take care everyone and hug your pups.
GRCI is a member club of the Golden Retriever Club of America and is licensed by the American Kennel Club. Our Members are golden retriever owners, breeders, exhibitors, trainers, and judges. The majority of our members are located in the Chicago and suburban Chicago areas. While the majority of our members are located in the Chicago and suburban Chicago areas, we have members from all over Illinois, southern Wisconsin and northern Indiana. Together, we sponsor club activities that range from educational to competitive to down-right fun. GRCI also publishes a newsletter, sponsors this website, has a Facebook page, and holds bi-monthly membership meetings.
Our major events include a Hunt test in May, Specialty, Obedience and Rally trials in June, multiple Agility trials per year, and Scent Work and Tracking tests in the Fall. In addition, we hold regular CCAs (Certificate of Conformation Assessment), attend Pet Expos, host a Health Clinic, hold special seminars, have holiday parties and picnics!
