Welcome to Buckeye Retriever Club.

Our mission is the promotion of the working retriever:

  • The betterment of retrieving breeds and furtherance of good sportsmanship in the field
  • Encourage and promote quality in the breeding of purebred retrievers and to do all things possible to bring their natural qualities to perfection
  • Conduct sanctioned and licensed hunt tests and field trials under the rules of The American Kennel Club.

Buckeye Retriever Club is very thankful and fortunate to have the use of Hambden Nursery, owned and generously made available to club members by the Kittredge Family. On behalf of the Buckeye membership, we thank Jon Kittredge for the ability to enjoy and utilize this unique property. Chessman and his son Jon Kittredege, were very active in field trial competitions and have been big supporters of Buckeye Retriever Club for many years. 

Our training grounds are located in Hambden, Ohio. Hambden Nursery, Hambden, Ohio. We host several events a year, including AKC licensed hunt tests and field trials. We work together in an informal venue of training our retrievers to hunt or compete, and support each other in the fellowship, cooperation and learning that can take place when people and dogs are working toward mutual goals.

We welcome new members and would love to have you join us at an upcoming event to learn more about this rewarding sport.

Today was the first session of the Beginners Training Group @ Buckeye Retriever Club that Pat Daly has generously offer to lead. It was quite the hardy group that braved the less than favorable weather. The group included Cliffette Thacker, Pete Swanson, Loraine & Harold Fox, Ellen Manes, Scott Stevens, Rob Justice, Sue Davis Howard Guerin, and Cyndi Poveda with Pat Daly leading the group.From the reports it sounds like it was a very successful day with everybody looking forward to next week. The weather will hopefully start getting better and I'm sure we will have at least a few others joining the group.See you next Saturday at 9:00 AM at the nursery! ... See MoreSee Less
