Conservation of harvested game is improved when hunters use well trained hunting dogs. Organized dog training groups meet from April through August when some of our members come together to train their pointers, flushers and retrievers. The training is tailored for dogs and handlers of all skill levels and abilities. Experienced dog handlers are available to mentor less experience handlers as requested.
See the club calendar for meeting times.
