LABRADOR RETRIEVER CLUB of QUEENSLAND Inc.
 

Retrieving Trials



First and foremost the Labrador Retriever is a working gundog.
The very first Labrador "imports" that were taken to England from their ancestral
home in Newfoundland travelled with one purpose in mind.

That sole purpose was to allow the English gentry the opportunity of developing
and finetuning the ultimate shooting retriever.
There was no concept back in 1822 that these dogs had a dual purpose.

There was no consideration given back almost 190 years ago that these dogs would
also prove to be the World's Very Best and Most Popular:
Family Companion Dog
Guide Dog
Bomb Detector Dog
Drug Detector Dog
Military Service Dog
and of course
Retrieving Dog
