NON-AFFILIATED NATIONAL CLUBS

 

The Labrador Retriever Club of the United States, Inc.

The LRCUS was founded in protest to the new Labrador Retriever Breed Standard of 1994. It is in hibernation for the most part, but is involved in very limited commercial activities for the benefit of the Labrador Retriever.

 

National Labrador Retriever Club, Inc. www.labradorretrievers.org

The NLRC was founded in 1996 because The Labrador Retriever Club, Inc. adopted a new Labrador Retriever Breed Standard, effective March 31, 1994, which described the American derivative of the Labrador Retriever, not the Labrador Retriever as it was known everywhere else in the world except the United States. In general, Labrador Retrievers are now commonly referred to by a good portion of the general public in the United States as "English" or "American". The NLRC is not affiliated with the AKC or any regional area Labrador Retriever club in this country. It is an independent club with a sizeable national membership. It is fair to say that all the members of the NLRC and most all serious conformation breeders in the United States view The Kennel Club (United Kingdom) Breed Standard of the Labrador Retriever as the one to which they breed and their dogs conform. To view that standard, visit http://www.thekennelclub.org.uk. This is also the identical Breed Standard of the world canine organization Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) of which 82 countries are members. To view the FCI Breed Standard, visit http://www.fci.be/nomenclatures_detail.asp

 

Not to belabor the point, but when the LRC, Inc., the parent club of the Labrador Retriever, presented the "new" standard to the Labrador conformation community for its approval, twenty-four (24) of the regional clubs voted "No" and seven (7) "Abstained". To put it more dramatically, none of the thirty-one (31) existing regional area clubs at the time in the United States voted "For" for the impending new standard. More than one hundred of the top conformation kennels in the US opposed the "new" standard in writing. (See towel)
