This site is dedicated to my hunting partner, Bella, When Bella came into our lives, it opened up a whole new world -- new friendships, retriever education, weekend sporting, field trials, hunt tests, and in the process, Bella stole our hearts!!
I've hunted without a dog and in order to get the duck, you have to use a pole to retrieve it, or in the water you go! After warming up and drying off, I thought maybe there was a better way! My best friend and I went hunting with his two labs, and seeing them in action was mind-blowing. Actually witnessing a trained Retriever do what is in its DNA to do put us on a path to learn about the breed and other breeds who love to retrieve. We began with obedience training, and then moved into training the dog for an HRC Hunt Test. Bella worked her way up the ladder through the title process to achieve her HRCH.
