What they say about Eastern Counties GRC :

"I so admire everything ECGRC do. Such a brilliant Club and certainly blazing the trail as far as providing what their members want and so much more" (Mary Neil, Moloko Golden Retrievers, Scotland)

"I will always be grateful to the Eastern Counties committee for the encouragement I've been given over the years to work my show goldens. Despite the distance, I was always made to feel welcome at any events I attended, show or working. How fitting that my little blond Frolic should make th front page of this year's Magazine! (Mandy McDonald, Lamancha Golden Retrievers, Scotland)

"We very much enjoyed reading the magazine, what a marvellous organisation, so glad to learn re-homing is not seen as a major issue for goldens" (Andrew Wyatt owner of ECGRC Rescue Dog of the Year 2020).

Updates January 2021

SCAMP & SASHA TROPHY:  In view of the 2020 show calendar being so badly affected by COVID-19, the committee has decided that The Scamp and Sasha Trophy will not be presented this year.  Let’s hope that showing will return later in the year so that you can compete with your lovely dogs and earn lots of points.

PUPPIES:  The extraordinary demand for puppies continues unabated.  For detailed advice on buying a puppy, please click here.  The Committee is also aware that during the current pandemic some people may need help or advice on other dog related subjects. The Kennel Club has a lot of articles on the following  link

RESCUE:  We continue to experience an increase in enquiries from people wishing to adopt a rescue golden retriever. Currently we have no rescue dogs available and a long waiting list of people wishing to adopt.  As and when we have a dog available for rehoming, we match the dog with the applicant.  For those wishing to join this list, a form is available to download and complete on our Rescue page.

Our Facebook page has lots of activities for you and your dog to try  – including mind games, gundog training and grooming tips. If you can’t find what you need there or just need someone to talk to, please contact one of the Committee and we will try to help.
