Great Lakes Hunting retriever club

Thanks for visiting our web site. We are a working and highly active club based out of the Grand Rapids area though our members live throughout Michigan and we even have members from Ohio and Indiana. Our club holds it's  monthly meetings in Grandville at Famous Dave's. 


Our members own a wide variety of hunting dogs including Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, German Short Haired Pointers, Brittaney Spaniels, Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, and  Münsterländers, as well as other breeds.  We all share a common love of  training retrievers and other breeds for hunt tests and for hunting ducks, geese and upland birds.


Our hunt tests are held in Fenwick, MI and Freeport, MI and we offer weekly training sessions on Wednesday nights in Zeeland. 


You will find that our members sport a broad range of experience and are eager to help handlers who want to improve their dogs and their skills or are new to the sport and want to find out what it's all about. We can also offer help locating trainers if you prefer professional help and often know about litters of  puppies  available for someone who is looking to add that special hunting partner.
