Cowtown HRC's goal is to work, individually and together, to promote and support the betterment of all retriever breeds. Through training and testing our retrievers in hunting environments, we prove our dogs to the achievement of titles offered by HRC. Founded in 1996, Cowtown HRC proudly encourages and supports waterfowl and upland hunters in teaching and preparing their dogs to be the best they can - in hunting and hunt test venues. If you'd like to have a more prepared hunting companion in your dog or you haven't experienced seeing well trained retrievers, we invite you to contact us.
