WELCOME TO NODROG
The NODROG Gordon Setter Club of Michigan, INC is an organization dedicated to promoting the
BEAUTY, BRAINS & BIRDSENSE in our black and tan Gordon Setters
___________________________________________

Our club was organized in 1983, and for 11 years we operated as an area committee of the Gordon Setter national or "parent club", the Gordon Setter Club of America, Inc, In 1994, the NODROG Gordon Setter Club of Michigan was officially licensed as a fully independent organization by the American Kennel Club, but we maintain close ties to the GSCA.

We annually host 2 AKC field trials, 2-3 AKC hunt tests, and independent specialty show with obedience and rally trials, and a number of educational and "fun events", including a yearly eye exam (CERF) and heartworm clinic and a summer fun picnic.

We are especially proud of our Gordon Setter rescue program. We place an average of 5-7 dogs annually in new homes. These dogs are evaluated for any health and temperament issues and placed with new families. We are always looking for potential foster families as well as folks willing to adopt.
We also have an active breeder referral program which matches prospective owners with responsible breeders of puppies and adult dogs.
____________________________________________

At present, we have approximately 100 members, most of whom reside in Michigan, but also have members in Maryland, Ontario, Indiana, Florida, Ohio, Maine and Minnesota. Membership is open to all interested Gordon fanciers, but Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Ontario residents will benefit the most from club membership since all club events are held in Michigan.
WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU JOIN OUR CLUB!

The Nodrog Specialty Raffle would not
be what it is without the generous sponsor donations
Please check them out!!!
Generous Specialty Sponsors
 

 

The Gordon Setter Club of America Board of Directors has added the donation of DNA to the OFA/CHIC DNA repository as a required test to earn a CHIC number, along with the rcd4 test. (Requirements are now hips/elbows/CERF/CHIC-DNA/and rcd4 to earn a CHIC number on a Gordon Setter.)  This is effective July 1, 2013.

 

Therefore, Nodrog Gordon Setter Club will be hosting a CHIC/DNA blood draw following Breed judging at the Specialty on Saturday, Sept. 21.  Barb Meining DVM has agreed to do the blood draws, and the kits will be prepared and ready for you.  BUT a pedigree must be enclosed with the blood sample when it is submitted to OFA, and Bea VanKempen has a very extensive pedigree database, and will do the pedigrees for us… A reservation to have this blood draw done must be made to Mary Ann Leonard (mal1@cmsinter.net) so the kits can be prepared in advance, and the pedigrees generated to include in the kit. 

 

There is a nominal fee due to OFA, so come with a check…

 

This  downloadable form needs to be filled out and sent in the kit along with the pedigree.

 

Thanks to Barb and Bea for their help in pulling this off this year.  We haven’t done this in several years, and I feel proud that our members are willing again to contribute GORDON SETTER DNA to be stored for upcoming research.  Without our contributions in the past, the rcd4 test that AHT created would not have been possible within the time frame of its creation.

I guess because he's a Michigan boy, Marshall seems to
just love his hockey-naps on the sofa in the family room!
(Marshall now lives in Colorado!)

 
 
  In an effort to elicit increased participation in events by the membership, the Nodrog Board created a Doggie Bow Wow Reward program.  Points were awarded to NON Board members (Board members were NOT eligible to participate!!!) for working at events and attending meetings.  This year, our number one vote getter was Rich Black with 275 points and John Grill was the number two vote getter with 200 points!!  It was decided to award a Gas Card to the winners.  Thank you so much for all these two great guys did for the Club last year.  Please provide feedback to the Board as to whether you would like this program to continue next year.
