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.
CCRAV holds social events, including education for owners on areas of interest.
Breed Specialty Show at Royal Melbourne Show this year and details of next Fun Day will be in next newsletter.
Be Aware!!! If you are looking into owning a Curly Coated Retriever please be warned that there is another unregistered breed the “Murray River” Curly (known as 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 also is different (eg coat is a far looser wave and head much broader with long spaniel type ears). The Murray River Retriever has its own followers and it is important for both to understand the difference.
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.
