The Southern Golden Retriever Society was founded in 1977 and covers the areas of Kent, East Sussex, West Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire and London, south of the River Thames. It is one of 13 breed clubs dedicated to the safeguard and perpetuation of the Breed. The Society strives always to achieve the ideal of a true dual purpose dog.
The Society exists for the benefit of its Members and the Committee provides a full range of regular functions and other activities to promote the training, showing, breeding and other activities pertaining to the Golden Retriever as well as encouraging good health management for the breed.
The natural instinct of our lovely breed is to retrieve game in the shooting field and this instinct is encouraged by participation in the society's working tests and field trials.
The Society also encourages members to participate in other disciplines by providing ring craft, obedience and agility training, shows and educational events.
We all hear such horrible tales of people buying puppies from all sorts of unsuitable places and people, probably because they don't know how to go about finding a well bred Golden Retriever puppy
