To these ends we hold AKC-licensed Specialty Shows, Obedience Trials, Hunting Tests, Agility Trials and Tracking Tests. We also offer Fun Matches and Working Certificates. We sponsor educational seminars and clinics and publish a newsletter. We urge our members to breed only dogs that will be sound in both type and temperament and contribute to the improvement of the breed.
We encourage all of our members to show their dogs and to work them in the field and in the obedience ring to develop their full potential while working toward the club All-Around Labrador Award. This award is given to dogs with titles in all three areas: Conformation, Obedience, and Field. The club also gives a Versatility Award to dogs who excel in three areas other than conformation.
Our nearly 300 members live predominantly in Western Washington, but also reside in Eastern Washington, Oregon, Alaska and British Columbia. Some live as far away as Vermont, Virginia, Texas and California.
