Welcome to the
Curly Coated Retriever Club of Victoria
The Curly Coated Retriever Association of Victoria (CCRAV) is the only club with the responsibility of representing the Curly Coated Retriever breed in Victoria. We are one of two clubs within Australia who represent our breed, the other being the Curly Coated Retriever Association of NSW.
Our membership base includes many varied disciplines, be it a beloved family companion, obedience, showing, retrieving, tracking or hunting, we all enjoy getting together and sharing a tale or two about our curly friends.
The CCRAV holds social events, including education for owners on areas of interest.
If you are looking into owning a "Curly Coated Retriever" please be warned that there is another unregistered breed the “Murray River Retriever” (also called the Murray Duck Dog, Murray Curly, Murray River Curly etc) which is aligning itself to the curly coated retriever - BUT from evidence to date their DNA does not link them to the curly. The appearance of the Murray River is also different (eg coat is a far looser wave and head much broader with long spaniel type ears and they only come in the liver colour). They also have a different temperament. Both the "Curly Coated Retriever "and the "Murray River Retriever" have their own followers and it is important to know the difference.
A reminder that when purchasing a pure bred Curly Coated Retriever puppy from a breeder you should receive an original registration certificate from the ANKC and copies of the health testing conducted on the parents of the puppy. e.g. PRA, EIC and Hip Scoring.
CCRAV is holding a Breed Specialty Show this year.
This will be run in conjunction with the Royal Melbourne Show. Details will be uploaded on our Facebook Site and Web Site
The Schedule will be appear in our Newsletter also.
