The Curly Coated Retriever Club of Southern California is dedicated to promoting and supporting the Curly Coated Retriever and the people that share their lives. Many of our members are active in field, obedience, agility, fly ball, and conformation events and bring a wealth of experience in the breed spanning several decades.
The Southern California fanciers sponsored the first independent national specialty for the CCRCA and are working toward hosting their own regional specialty in the future.
The Curly-Coated Retriever Club of America
The CCRCA, chartered in 1979, is the national parent club for the breed. The club publishes the Curly Commentator, a bi-monthly newletter, sponsors a National Specialty, and supports the placement of Curlies needing good homes through Curly rescue. The CCRCA encourages the development of the natural retrieving abilities of the breed through its working certificate program and annual field trophy award. Curlies with notable achievements receive permanent recognition as members of the Hall of Fame, while the Register of Merit honors dogs whose progeny have earned titles in conformation, performance and field events.
Check out the photos if you don’t believe it! Through the years, our puppies and adults have been family pets, therapy dogs, top show dogs, award-winning field dogs, top ranked agility competitors, excelled in the obedience ring, hunted with verve and enthusiasm, and several have even served as muse to a hopeful novelist!
