We will be holding a beginner field class this year!
This is a structured five-session class. Emphasis is placed on dog and handler teamwork. Sessions build upon each other so it is VERY important that participants attend the majority of sessions (no more than 1 should be missed- the class is limited so don’t take up a spot if you can’t attend).
This introductory class is for dogs (retrieving breeds only) 7 months of age or older – no upper age limit.
Only one dog per handler.
Due to the limited number, dogs may not repeat the class. Handlers may repeat with another dog.
In order to sign up for the class you must be a member of PVGRC or have submitted an application to join.
One requirement of the class is that you *MUST* volunteer to work one full day at our October 2023 or June 2024 hunt test, or our 2024 WC/WCX.
