ETRC is a Hunt Test club for Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, and all others approved by AKC to run in AKC-sanctioined hunt tests. ETRC is dedicated to the advancement of the breeds to their full potential as sporting dogs running hunt tests. Our club conducts simulated hunt tests throughout the year, as well as official AKC Hunt Tests twice a year.

The purpose of ETRC is to promote and encourage the breeding of pure bred AKC registered retrievers and to do all that is possible to bring their natural qualities to perfection by promoting sportsman like competition at AKC Hunt Tests. ETRC conducts club trials and fun training sessions during the fiscal year at local farms and Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency's managed areas. These are informal, one day events in which dogs may compete in five different stakes depending on age and abilities.
