First post. Does anyone out there know of any retriever clubs in the northern illinois area? Or, would you know how I would find one? I've tried searching and can't seem to find anything. I have a 4 months old chocolate that I'm working with and have heard that working with a group could help me out.
You can go on the Hunting Retriever club website and pull of list of clubs. Also AKC you can do the same. A little more searching but go to AKC.org and look for events then work your way down to hunting test. the have a seach section that you click on the state and it brings up the clubs.
Karen thank you. I've going to really show my ignorance of the club scene here but..if I don't want to actually enter her into competitions can I still participate in training activities? I'm mainly looking for a place where I can train her and possibly get some help.
