    Default Hunt test training in Eugene OR area?

    I am looking for a trainer to work with to get my dog ready for a JH test next fall. I don't hunt and have watched a few tests but don't have any experience. I compete with him in agility, tracking and obedience. The trainer would be training me to train him, so I'd need someone who doesn't mind working with a non-hunting newbie.
    Any leads would be great, thanks,
    Kathy Sugitani

    You might want to give a call to Robin Rawls (Wetland Retrievers) or Paul Cantrell (Black Ice Retreivers) and see if they can help you out, or recommend someone that can.

    Do they have to be in Eugene or are you willing to travel a little? If you are willing to travel about 2 hours you would have lots of options. Robin Rawls I believe is down by Roseburg. Jim Davis in Dallas is a great guy. In the Portland area you've got Doug Schade, Butch Higgins, and a few more. I know there is a fairly active training group in Roseburg that will be getting started again after duck season is over. You can contact them at http://uvrconline.com/. Great folks! I don't know if there is a training group in Eugene or not. Ron In Portland can point you to all sorts of folks to train with in the Salem/Portland area. Good Luck!

    Thanks everyone! I will travel for the right trainer. Hopefully I will someday be posting that my dog got his JH!
