National Retriever Championship September 15-21, 2024

We are counting down to the 2024 Canadian National Retriever Championship in Callander, Nipissing District, North Bay, Ontario.  The National Committee and it’s team of volunteers are working hard to get everything ready for this annual epic event.

The judges are Mike Zelman, Nova Scotia representing the Eastern zone, and Rick Roberts from British Columbia, and Chris Brandl from Minnesota representing the Western zone.

Details are still evolving however there is an information booklet  (scroll down) that will provide you with plenty of information about the event and the North Bay District and surrounding area.  Check back periodically for updated information.

Dogs continue to qualify at trials every weekend across Canada. View the Qualified Dogs here.

2024 will be the first year to offer an online entry form and will be available when the premium is posted in July.

Thank you to the 2024 sponsors, especially our Gold Level Official Sponsors, Purina Pro Plan and Garmin.

See you in North Bay!
