    Default Anyone training in NW Alabama....

    Looking to see if anyone is doing any training in the Shoals area, or close by? Got an 11 week old pup, and wouldn't mind tying into a group.

    Thanks!

    I train in the Vernon & Sulligent area which is more than an hour South of you. You are welcome to train with me anytime.

    Mike Perry is involved with the North Alabama HRC. I'm sure he can steer you in the right direction.

    We have a good group that is around cullman/Arab that trains regularly if you're interested.

    North Alabama Hunting Retriever Club (NAHRC) will be having a training day on April 20 th (Weather permitting) near Decatur. Starting around 8 am and ending in plenty of time to get in front of ESPN for the "A Day" game. We have already had our spring hunt test but there are a couple more in the area in the next couple of months if you are interested. Training is our main focus and we try to have a training day every month within a couple hour drive of where you are. Come on and join us.

    Thank you for the offer! I may take you up on that sometime. Right now my schedule is pretty flexible in allowing me to spend a lot time with Pup, and will allow me some training time as well as she grows. However, I don't really have enough free time at once to travel to train if that makes sense?

    If you train with me or not, you should still train with the North Alabama crew. Much more of a group atmosphere. Locally it is me training alone or with 1 or 2 others.

    Central Alabama is having a test in Greensboro AL next month if you want to see what the games are all about.
