- Grand Hunting Retriever Champion (GRHRCH) SearchA UKC/HRC title used as a prefix, denoting that a Retriever has qualified in one of the semi- annual HRC Grand event. This title is achieved upon successful completion of two of these tests and the accumulation of 200 more points after earning the HRCH degree, for a total of 300 points. The judges look for demonstrated versatility and excellence in performing under all hunting conditions, ranging from various waterfowl environments found in coastal marshes, inland waterways, flooded timber, western prairies to upland game conditions while hunting grouse, pheasant or dove. The Grand Hunting Retriever is to be steady and under control at all times and is eager and prompt to respond to all commands with style and precision. Consists of tests over 4 days, and will contain at least five tests, a multiple-marked water retrieve; a multiple-marked land retrieve; (either or both of the marking tests must include an honor and a diversion retrieve); a blind land retrieve and a blind water retrieve and an upland game and quartering test. Forty Championship points are awarded for those dogs that pass all Grand Hunting Retriever tests.
