YR Hunting DogRetriever2Hunting

Yadkin River Waterfowl and Retriever Club (YRWRC) has an exclusive 121 acre training center in Mebane, NC, centrally located between Raleigh, Greensboro, Danville, VA, and worth the drive for Charlotte and Winston-Salem. Open year around to club members to train retriever dogs. Our Retriever Club membership promotes responsible ownership and training, education, competitive events and the sport. We hope that members can enhance their skills and enjoy our 121 acre training site with 6 ponds and a mix of terrain and vegetation. For membership fees and forms click here.

We present Junior, Senior and Master level scenarios that accurately depict what you and your dog will face when competing in a sanctioned AKC Hunt Test. These scenarios are presented by members who either are currently competing or have successfully competed at the level being contested. Members critique each other and offer helpful hints to increase you and your dog’s competiveness. Several times a year we invite area professional trainers to our training days to assist us.
