A Little About Ourselves
The Master Amateur Retriever Club (MARC) was established in 2016 as a national retriever club dedicated to the amateur handler. MARC believes that amateurs are the purpose and backbone of the AKC Hunting Test for Retrievers program and will support and encourage their involvement in the sport. MARC, while patterned after the Master National, is a separate and distinct organization. MARC will host an annual invitational event – The Master Amateur Invitational - for qualified amateur handled retrievers.
