Hall of Fame

The Hall of Fame of the Flat-Coated Retriever Society of America, Inc., honors the breed’s most accomplished Flat-Coated Retrievers that have also proven that they reflect the dual purpose nature of the breed. Inherent in the requirements for admission to the Hall of Fame is the intention to foster the historical concept of the Flat-Coated Retriever as a dual purpose dog, the “strong but elegant, cheerful hunting retriever”, free from disqualifying fault, as described in the official Breed Standard adopted by the Flat-Coated Retriever Society of America, Inc.


The Versatility Awards can be looked upon as stepping stones to the Hall of Fame or to simply recognize those versatile dogs and owners that enjoy participating in all companion dog sports.
