  Our Mission:

  • To recognize that the Golden Retriever is a gun dog and to encourage the members to perfect, by selective breeding, Golden Retrievers that possess the appearance, soundness, temperament, natural ability and personality that is reflected in the standard of the breed, and to do all possible to advance and promote the perfection of these qualities.

  • To urge members and breeders to accept the standard of the breed as approved by the AKC as the only standard of excellence by which Golden Retrievers shall be judged.

  • To do all in its power to protect and advance the interests of the breed by promoting responsible ownership of Golden Retrievers and encouraging sportsmanlike competition at competitive and performance events.

  • To encourage and conduct sanctioned matches, licensed specialty shows, obedience trials, and tracking and hunting events tests and WC/WCX tests under the rules of the AKC and/or guidelines of the Golden Retriever Club of America (GRCA).
Valle del Sol Golden Retriever Club was established in 1972 by a group of Golden Retriever owners and enthusiasts who came together in order to pursue ways of promoting and enjoying their Golden Retrievers.   Membership is composed of conformation, obedience, field, agility, rally and tracking exhibitors as well as breeders and pet owners-people just like you, who are interested in preserving the standard and special qualities of the Golden Retriever.  VDSGRC is licensed to conduct Sanctioned Specialty Matches, Specialty Shows, Field Events, and Obedience Events under the rules of the American Kennel Club.  We would like to invite you to attend our meetings, participate, and share in your love of the Golden Retriever.  VDSGRC holds its meetings on the fourth Tuesday of the month.
