Welcome to the Winnebago Labrador Retriever Club web site!

The Winnebago Labrador Retriever Club (WLRC) is an AKC licensed club that was designed to encourage and promote the quality of pure-bred Labrador Retrievers and to highlight the versatility, trainability and beauty of the breed.

In 1972, Sally McCarthy called together a small group of Labrador breeders and the seeds of the Winnebago Labrador Retriever Club (WLRC) were sown. January 1973 became the official birth date of the club and the charter members represented the most active and influential breeders in the area.

WLRC hosted four of the most successful National Specialties ever held before embarking on its first local specialty show in 1984.

The Club's mission is to do all in its power to protect and advance the interests of the breed by promoting quality breeding, encouraging sportsmanlike competition at dog shows, obedience trials, hunting retriever tests and field trials and education in the qualities and responsibilities of Labrador Retriever ownership.

WLRC conducts sanctioned and licensed specialty shows, obedience trials, rally trials, agility trials and hunting retriever tests under the rules of the American Kennel Club.
