Whistling Wings Hunting Retriever Club is a part of the national Hunting Retriever Club, Inc (HRC) which was formed under the auspices of the United Kennel Club, Inc (UKC). The club operates under the following by laws: WWHRC By Laws, HRC, and UKC. WWHRC is devoted to maintaining the inherent working abilities of all Retrievers, Spaniels, and Poodles with the motto "Conceived by Hunters for Hunters".
Staying true to the motto, Whistling Wings HRC events are no-nonsense true to life training and testing situations where gun dog owners and family train, learn, and test their dogs a field. The club is dedicated to helping handlers of all ages and abilities work to develop their dog’s natural hunting skills.
The way the club accomplishes this is through monthly training days , twice annually hunts, and a community of gun dog owners to help you along the way. The club hosts two hunts a year providing four opportunities to test and earn champion point towards titles on your dog. If you are not interested in points or testing, members are willing to help make your dog a better hunting companion and since we train with ducks at our training day your dog gets to pick them up all year long.
A membership with Whistling Wings Hunting Retriever Club gets you discounts during training days, information about upcoming events, and access to knowledge and experience from a wide variety of handlers.
If you have any questions about WWHRC, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Whistling Wings Training Days
Training Days are held February through September. Training days provide you the opportunity to train and teach your dog how to be a retriever. The club brings out the trailer of equipment and birds to give your dog the experience it needs for either hunting or hunt tests. Additionally, members provide members with the tips, things to work on, and any other information you need to help improve your dogs field work.
Training days are perfect whether you're training your dog for upcoming hunt test season or just want to get your dog out on marks during the off season. We have lots of things going on and break for lunch so handlers can mingle.
