    You might want to have him get in touch with Clint and Sherie Catledge of Bear Country Retrievers. They are primarily hunt test trainers but also dabble in the minor stakes.

    Great folks and have some of the nicest water I've seen in that part of the country.

    They are located near Franklin, KY and Portland, TN. Here's their website: http://bearcountryretrievers.com/

    I believe Danny Lutrell is in that neighborhood, as well. A very accomplished Derby trainer.

    j towne - I'm on the board at Middle TN (MTARC) and Sherie Catledge is our Secretary. Tell your buddy to get in touch with one of us. We are always glad to have new members. We have an AKC Judges seminar and our Annual Club banquet coming up on February 9th, so it would be a great time for him to meet alot of folks.

    As Tracy posted, our clubs Annual Banquet as well as the AKC Judges/Handlers Seminar on February 9th would be a great place to meet other retriever owners in the Middle TN area. Please feel free to have your puppy person contact me for more information about our local retriever clubs. Most of our club members are in active hunt mode right now, so not a lot of training days per se, but it appears I might be close by as we are at the TN/KY border in northern Sumner County.

    Music City HRC seems like a great club. MTARC does too. I am a member at TN River HRC in Union City but would be happy to belong to either one if I lived down there (I'm in western Ky). My dog got his HR and HRCH at Music City and ran senior at MTARC. They put on a well organized HT and the members seem like good guys and ladies. I look forward to running master down there next yr.
