The Pacific Rim Hunting Retriever Club is a volunteer organization that hosts two Canadian Kennel Club Hunt Tests and one Working Certificate Test for Retrievers, Irish Water Spaniels and Standard Poodles in a calendar year on Vancouver Island.
We also organize training days where everybody works together to share best practices and training tips while having lots of fun with our dogs, friends and family.
By hosting training days, Hunt Tests and Working Certificate tests The Pacific Rim Hunting Retriever Club shares the Canadian Kennel Club vision regarding the purpose of these events.
According to the CKC "the purpose Hunt Test for Retrievers, Irish Water Spaniels and Standard Poodles is to test the merits of, and evaluate the abilities of these dogs in the field in order to determine their suitability and ability as hunting companions".
As a club our goal is to promote the hunting retriever sport and responsible dog ownership through the training of family and hunting companions.
Our membership is a mix group of avid hunters, breeders and dog fanatics mainly from Vancouver Island, but also from the rest of BC and Alberta.
We always welcome new members, but if you are just curious and want to see for yourself what we are all about feel free to join one of our training or test days, we can assure you that the worst case scenario is that you will not be able to stop yourself from picturing your dog on the field with you!
Pacific Rim Hunting Retriever Club works to support the conservation efforts of Ducks Unlimited by acting as land stewards of the Ducks Unlimited Swallowfield Farm in Chemainus on Vancouver Island, BC.
We also acknowledge our responsibility as dog owners to provide a long healthy life to our best friends by supporting the efforts of The Smiling Blue Skies® Cancer Fund.
