We are new golden owners locate in Brooklyn, looking to join a club around us. I checked LIGC website, it looks like 1 hr trip from us.

Do you mind tell me a bit more about the club. Do we need existing club member sponsor to join LIGC? Can we join the club if the dog is not AKC registered? We are new golden owners, and havent sent the dog for any training class. Does the club accept level zero newbie?

We also heard about hudson valley golden retriever club, if you know anything about them, could you please share some info as well?

The club does have membership requirements but they have been relaxed a bit. I think that our meetings are probably a little closer than Hudson Valley. AKC registration of your dog is not required. In fact we have members that don't own goldens. Our club meets every other month. Several interests are represented in the club---agility, conformation, obedience, hunt tests, field trials and at least one member dances (freestyle?) with her dog and gives exhibitions. I live in Floral Park, near LIJ Hospital and the trip to the meetings is 20-25 minutes.
I really don't know much about Hudson Valley.

Thanks so much for the info. Thats sweet, we will definitely give it a try next year. ( I assume the club cant do too much in winter time.)

Do you mind I ask how much they ask for membership fee a year? and what they usually do in meeting?

We locate at bensonhurt area, around 50min-1 hr drive if no traffic (but we experienced a 3 hrs traffic once when visit a family member who lives in LI )

The club meets September through June and is very active with several events. The Field contingency is actively training March through September. Field training takes place minimum 5x a week. Depending on weather and your desire to train, training for the field does not have to stop during the winter. Even when it does, there are some of us who actually hunt our dogs which then becomes a Fall and Winter activity.

Meetings consist of club business and a guest speaker if possible.

Thx for the answers.

Would you mind point me a start point? such as who I should contact, how should I submit application, where/when I should bring my dog for the first meeting/event etc.

Thx a million

I think that you should just come to the next meeting which is Nov. 16. It meets in the conference room of the Long Island Veterinary Specialists on the eastbound service road of the LIE. Walk up to the front, ask for Mel Berman (President), ask for George (me), and you will be set. This meeting may be boring, there are elections for Board members. (Some of our meetings are fascinating. At one of our meetings, we had a vet speak on canine acupuncture.)

I sincerely wish we could go for the upcoming meeting. I am a big holistic fan. Our puppy is on 100% raw diet. I would really love to learn something about the pet acupuncture. However, I am afraid we may unable to make it this time. We are still in FL visiting family without a scheduled date back to NY. We will definitely show up if we could. Do you mind if I pop you a PM to confirm later?

If we could make the meeting, what documents should we bring with us (such as health certificate, shots record, NY registration etc)? Can/should we bring the dog?

You don't need to bring anything. Members do not bring their dogs to meetings. We do have other events where dogs are welcome. If you are interested in field (you should at least give it an honest try) you will be bringing the dog for training all the time. Oh, I also do stealth training for field in the city. I could advise you on how to do that.

PM me anytime.
