The Fairbanks Retriever Club is the oldest established retriever club in Alaska. Originally known as the Alaska Field Trial Association, it has been active in the Interior of the state since the early 1950s. In 1960 it was formed under its current name of Fairbanks Retriever Club. Through the years and despite changes in members and leadership, the club remains dedicated to all the retriever breeds and helping their owners improve their knowledge and skills in training, testing, trialing and hunting their dogs.

During the course of the year, we hold training classes, outdoor field sessions, picnic trials and AKC hunt tests and field trials. We welcome all retriever owners, from the beginner puppy owner all the way to the seasoned trainer!
