Welcome to the Hudson Valley Golden Retriever Club (HVGRC) web site. HVGRC is made up of Golden Retriever lovers in and around New York's lovely Hudson Valley including other areas of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Our meetings are open to all but only members can bring their dogs.

Our members are drawn primarily from the tri-state area--Connecticut, New York and New Jersey. They are involved in all manner of activities and competitions: pet-assisted therapy, conformation, obedience, Rally obedience, agility, field events, and tracking. 

On our website you will find information about the club, it's activities and members.  If you are considering getting a golden retriever, there is also our puppy referral service. Contact Membership Chairperson, Lisa Weinberg at for membership information.

Puppy Referral

HVGRC offers Puppy Referral services to individuals and families looking for a quality golden. Buying a Golden Retriever is a lifelong commitment and not an impulse decision. Our puppy referral volunteers will be happy to give you more information about purchasing a Golden Retriever from a reputable breeder...




We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way. We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary plan. --Irving Townsend
