The Curly-Coated Retriever Club of America
The CCRCA, chartered in 1979, is the national parent club for the breed. The club publishes the Curly Commentator, a bi-monthly newletter, sponsors a National Specialty, and supports the placement of Curlies needing good homes through Curly rescue. The CCRCA encourages the development of the natural retrieving abilities of the breed through its working certificate program and annual field trophy award. Curlies with notable achievements receive permanent recognition as members of the Hall of Fame, while the Register of Merit honors dogs whose progeny have earned titles in conformation, performance and field events.
As our guiding principles, the CCRCA subscribes to the tenets of the AKC Code of Sportsmanship.
