The Master National Retriever Club's web page says they have created The Master National Retriever (MNR) title for dogs that have completed 2 Master National events. I never see this title associated with any dogs. Can anyone tell me why this title doesn't appear with dog's name and what is a "club" title?

There is a Master National title given just by the Master National club and there is one given by the AKC that can be found on Page 17 of the current AKC Retriever rule book gives the full explanation of the Master National Title ( MNR) The clubs title was in existance way before the AKC title came into being as a way to honor dogs that passed twice.

Section 6. Master National Hunter Title (MNH).
In order to be recorded as a Master National Hunter, a dog must have passed the Master National Hunting Test three times. Dogs passing the Master National Hunting Test more than three times will have this accomplish- ment recorded by a numeric designation behind the title. For example, a dog passing the test six times would earn the title MNH6. The MNH title will be in addition to a dog’s MH title. A higher level MNH title will supersede a previous MNH title. For example, a MNH4 title will supersede a MNH title.
The Master National Retriever Club will notify the AKC Performance Events Department when a dog has passed the Master National Hunting Test three or more times. Upon verification of the accomplishments, the title will be placed on the dog’s record. The MNH title will appear after the dog’s name. Once the title has been placed on a dog’s record, it will appear on pedigrees and registration certificates.
An AKC title certificate will be issued at the request of the owner. A form provided by the Performance Events Department must be completed and submitted along with a fee. Upon receipt, a MNH title certificate will be issued. MNH application forms can be download- ed at www.akc.org/pdfs/events/hunting_tests/retrievers/ MNH_Title_Order_Form.pdf.

I was aware of the MNH title but ran across this and was confused....

I understand that the MNR title is given to dogs that pass 2 MNHTs but I don't think I ever saw it used in a name and I don't understand what a "club" title is.

That is because it was not a recognized AKC or UKC title / honor / designation / etc, prior to the AKC change that was addressed above. You may start seeing it now, since the AKC change, and the fact that they will recognize all those who met the requirements prior to (i.e. grandfathered in)
