    FT (Field Trial.) or HT (Hunt Test.)???? No such thing as a field test.

    Where are you located in East Texas? My kennel is in Longview. We are full right now at both locations but feel free to bring your pup out any time and if you don't like what you see here then we can surely get you pointed in the right direction. www.maximumintensityretrievers.com

    Another option would be to contact Angie Becker who is the breeder of this dog. www.tiogaretrievers.com

    Field trials you have your pick if you can get a spot. Tim Milligan, Danny Farmer, Dave rorem, Mark Edwards, Kenny Trott (winters here) Rob Erhard. I am sure I have left some off the list.
    Decide on which venue you want to participate in, then contact potential trainers and go visit. Talk to clients and attend events this fall. Most of all have FUN with your pup.

    Sounds like your looking for a young dog trainer. Check out Clint Avant with Vision retrievers. Works hard and dogs have awesome attitude. Pretty solid track record to boot!!!

    Where are you in East Texas? Also, good trainers aren't cheap. I'd avoid any "discount" type trainers.

    Tony beat me to it... if you trust a person as the breeder ,and theyve had success, Im assuming put the MH on the dam, why not go to the source?
