As we do for our club Flyer Days, these ‘rarer’ retriever breeds (Flat Coat Retrievers, Tollers, and Poodles) are welcome to attend.

In addition, you MUST sign up in advance for Training Days.  Spaces are limited, and will fill quickly.

Volunteer Particpation

These events are volunteer driven events.  When you are not running your dog, you are asked to help with throwing, carrying birds, hauling equipment, etc.

If you have a limitation that prevents you from helping in some capacity, PLEASE notify the event organizer prior to the event.

Guest Host

Alan Kabert will be leading this water focused training day!  Alan has had Goldens for many years, and is an avid water fowl hunter during the hunting season, and understands the importance of teaching our dogs how to enjoy their time in the water.

Thank you for agreeing to spend your day with us, Alan!

Set Ups

This day will be focused on various field water concepts.  More info will be posted as we get closer to the event.

Puppies, Young Dogs & Field Newbies

NORCAL GRC welcomes folks new to field sports as well as those with puppies and young dogs to come to our training days and see what the game is all about.  Please sign up in advance using the online entry form.  You will be contacted to get more information about your dog’s experience level and to find out what your goals are for the training day.

Sign In at CRTA Grounds

This is a NORCAL Golden Retriever Club training day, so there are no guest fees for Denverton CRTA.  However, if you are not a CRTA member, you will need to sign a hold-harmless form.   (If you are a member, but have not signed a form this year, you will also need to sign one.)  You will find the hold harmless form here.

Please read the first page AND print out the last page, sign and bring with you.  We also have an event sign in sheet with everyone’s name on it.  This separate sign in page is at the kiosk, please find your name on the sign in form, and leave your hold harmless on the clip board behind the sign-in form.

If you are a CRTA member, please still sign in on the separate sign-in sheet with your name on it.

Grounds Rules

Please stay on the gravel road and do NOT try to drive around puddles on the side of the road.  If you get stuck in the mud and have to have a tow truck come, it is very, very, very expensive and AAA will not come out.  In addition, you are responsible for costs to repair any damage to the grounds due to your vehicle.

Priority Registration for NORCAL GRC Members

Runs from April 25 at 7:00 pm through May 1, 2022:

  • There is a one week priority registration period for members, during which time members may enter ONE dog as long as space is available, and may waitlist up to TWO more dogs at the same time.
  • At the end of the one week priority registration period, if there are spaces remaining, we will fill those spaces with members’ second dogs, in the order entries were received.
  • After all second dogs have been pulled from the waitlist, and if spaces are still available, we will pull members’ third dogs from the waitlist.
  • After that, if there are any spaces remaining, we will open the event to members with non-Goldens, as well as non-members with Goldens, Flatcoats, Tollers & Poodles.

This event is full.  Email Samantha if you’d like to be added to the waiting list.
