Marshbanks Golden Retriever Club is a small but active club, made up of members who own not only Golden Retrievers, but also several other breeds. Our members participate in a wide variety of activities with their dogs, including conformation, field work, hunting, agility, obedience, rally, tracking, and therapy work.
We host several AKC and GRCA titling events throughout the year, as well as educational sessions on a variety of dog-related topics. Most of our members live in South Central Michigan, but we have some from out of the immediate area. We have several different meeting locations, including Omega Farms in Williamston, the Pardee's property Spencerfield in Concord, and Northfield Dog Training in Ann Arbor. We also sometimes have meetings at In Good Company, a restaurant in Clarklake and Jerry's Pub on the Lake, a restaurant in Brooklyn, MI.
Morris Animal Foundation
From the Morris Animal Foundation website:
"Morris Animal Foundation's Canine Lifetime Health Project is an online community of dog lovers willing to have their dogs participate in studies that will improve the health of dogs. By participating in the project, dog lovers further Morris Animal Foundation's efforts to support science that advances veterinary care for dogs.
The Golden Retriever Lifetime Study, first study of the Canine Lifetime Health Project, is a pioneering study focusing on identifying risk factors for development of cancer and other diseases in Golden Retrievers.
Our goal is to enroll 3,000 dogs by the summer of 2014. To date, we are 10 percent of the way there. We need your help to reach 100 percent over the next 14 months. We have all been touched by this amazing breed, and many of you have unfortunately gone through the heartbreak of losing a dog to cancer. Please spread the word by encouraging people to register at www.CanineLifetimeHealth.org.
Thank you for helping us create a brighter world for Golden Retrievers.
The Golden Retriever Lifetime Study Team"
