    I have run at Old Hatchie several times and I judged at their past Spring test. Like all HRC Clubs, they are a bunch of great people that you'll enjoy being associated with.

    You won't find a friendlier group of people in the dog world than HRC. They don't call it a "family" for nothing.

    We never recommend spaying (or neutering) before the age of 2. We like to give the dog time to mature and the growth plates to close. This is per our vet's recommendation.
