Who We Are

Our club serves San Antonio and surrounding area. Its members are both young and old, novice and pro, but all share the joy of retrievers. The club hosts both AKC and UKC sponsored hunt tests and field trial events. We also host monthly club training days to promote fellowship and improve your training.
