East Tennessee Retriever Club

Member Club, licensed and governed by the AKC
Member of the
MNRC and Lifetime Member of the MARC

The purpose of ETRC is to encourage the sport of retriever hunting tests and field trialing tests, promote sportsmanlike competition at field events, preserve game, and to promote quality in the breeding of pure-bred AKC registered retrievers. All breeds of retrievers approved by AKC to run in AKC-sanctioned field events are welcome.   

ETRC conducts official AKC Hunt Tests twice a year in the spring and fall.  In addition, we sponsor one-day club trials, seminars, and fun training sessions during the year at local farms and Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency's managed areas. We have activities and training opportunities for dogs and owners of all levels and abilities.  

Please take some time to visit the rest of our website, and if you have any questions regarding the East Tennessee Retriever Club, please email us HERE.
