Old South Hunting Retriever Club

    Welcome to the Old South Hunting Retriever Club. We are a club composed of hunting dog enthusiasts.

    OSHRC was founded in 1991 and has become one of the largest Retriever clubs in the Southeast. Our events are family oriented and have something to offer for everyone young and old alike. As our name implies we are a group of people who have come together with the common interest of hunting retrievers. Our membership owns several different breeds of working dogs for the purpose of retrieving.

    As a Club, our mission is  to help educate members on training and improving the breeds represented.  It is also our intent to continue proven and strong blood lines in these working dog breeds while remaining diligent in producing quality puppies.

    OSHRC runs under the standards set by The Hunting Retriever Club, which is sanctioned by the United Kennel Club. We hold many events throughout the year which include training days, training seminars, hunt tests, picnics, clay shoots, and informal training groups.

    Do not miss out on the fun! Come join us at our next event.

    A trained retriever is the best conservation tool!
