To enhance retrievers as a conservation tool, as we protect and advance the interests of retrievers through sportsmanlike conduct, education, training, competition while sustaining suitable habitat for retriever activities. Our goal is to purchase property for our members to use to train and enjoy our retrievers.
In 2012, the Founding Fathers of Mid Atlantic noticed the decline of retriever clubs, hunt tests and permanent accessible grounds. In September 2013, Mid Atlantic Hunting Retriever Club of Virginia became more than an idea.
The club started with 26 dedicated members and grew to nearly 80 in less than a year. As we continue to grow, our goal is to provide the opportunity to maximize the handlers and dogs.
The club offers training days, tips, social network, and education for all levels. In addition, Mid Atlantic will increase the number of competitive opportunities for AKC Field Trials and Hunt Tests in the region.
Please feel free to contact us for membership, future events and training days. Thank you for your interest and we look forward to seeing you.
