GRCBC Lifetime Member Janice GunnJanice became a member of the GRCBC in May 1993. Janice with her husband John have been involved with dogs for over 49 years. Janice is well known for her consistent success with her Goldens in Obedience as well as Hunt tests.  Janice and John have bred and trained multiple FTC and AFTC Goldens showcasing the breed’s abilities in a world typically dominated by Labrador Retrievers.

These same dogs have also achieved the highest levels of Obedience demonstrating the versatility of the breed. Several of their progeny continue their legacy.  It is important to preserve the foundation purpose of the breed we all know and love as a Retriever. One of the biggest challenges for any member wanting to get involved in Field work is access to land and ponds for training. Janice and John encourage and support the sport and the club by generously opening their training grounds at TNT to all members every Friday. In addition, Janice has provided their grounds at no cost for several GRCBC Training Day fundraisers with Smiling Blue Skies being the frequent recipient.  Janice has previously held the position of VP Obedience on the GRCBC Executive. She continues to help out at Hunt tests, offer mentorship on Field training days and shares her wealth of knowledge in Obedience training.
