THE SUPER RETRIEVER SERIES 2014
We hope you have had a successful hunting season with family, friends and of course your best friend. As the hunting season comes to an end, the test and trial season will begin. If you have never had the opportunity to be a part of the dog hunt test/trial game, be sure to look up your local AKC trials and UKC/HRC hunt test schedule and make the time to attend, meet new friends and watch the dogs work. There are clubs all over the US and more than likely one near you. It may be just the thing to take the place of hunting season and keep your buddy from sitting on the couch.
The Super Retriever Series has been going through a years worth of growth, updating some rules and developing an organizational team. The organizational team is a work in progress. If you have any interest, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The handbook will be going to press in the next few months and registration will now be through www.Huntsecretary.com.
