Welcome to the
We are affiliated with the United Kennel Club Hunting
Retriever Club with membership residing in Tyler, Longview, Marshall and the surrounding
After recognizing the benefits of hunting
with a trained retriever and the benefits of comraderie among friends,
the NETHRC was started in 1996. The
purpose of the club is to support and uphold the tenants of the HRC and to
educate its membership according to the rules and regulations as stipulated in
the HRC rulebook regarding the Hunt Test Sport. This is achieved through
informative lectures of guest speakers at our monthly meetings, as well as, at monthly training days. These take place year
round, excluding hunting season, and are beneficial to the handler and dog to
further equip them in the field.
Whatever the desires for your retriever may be, NETHRC is committed to the
support of the handler/trainer at that level. To that end, monthly training days
are a significant part of realizing goals set forth by the member. Whether the
desire is for a well-versed hunting partner or a Finished Hunting Retriever,
our club is devoted to the handler/trainer in supplying knowledge, encouragement
and support while having fun along the way. And, yes, there is celebration with
the hunter/retriever team as successes are realized, titles are won, ducks are
retrieved, and days of man and dog are enriched by sweet experiences that become
the treasures of a lifetime.
Do you have a retrieving companion that could use a little training? Looking to
get involved and participating in hunt tests? Realism is what we are all about!
Combine that with the environment of family oriented fun and you've found the
perfect combination for advancing your field companion and building friendships
that traverse the years - and the miles.
We are an affiliate of the
Club, Inc., an internationally recognized and globally
respected program for retrievers that trains and tests retrievers under
realistic hunting principles. The Hunting Retriever Club, Inc. ("HRC") supports
over 130 clubs around the US and Canada. No matter where you travel, you're
never far from the HRC family.
NETHRC hosts several special events throughout the year. Regular training and
sanctioned hunt tests offered in waterfowl and upland hunt settings. Our
training days offer the support of other members, some of which are professional
dog trainers. This makes them ideal places to get advice and support from
We also enjoy more "fun" with club Clay Shoots, seminars and clinics, and
additional entertainment as our club members elect.

other clubs in our area, region and across the country.
