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.
Adult membership: $25.00 per person
Couple: $40
Junior Membership (must be under 18): $12.50 per person
