Who We Are

Alamo Retriever Club is a group of hunting retriever trainers that enjoys working with our dogs to improve both hunting and retrieving  abilities. We train once or twice a month as a group, hold both AKC and HRC hunt tests and field trails, and participate in formal hunt tests.


Alamo Retriever Club welcomes you to join our club. If you are new to the retrieving dog sport, we help you learn how to train your dog to be come a better hunting companion as well as to participate in formal hunt tests or field trials. 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. So whether your an old hat or new to the world of retrievers, Alamo is a great place to be! Come join us at our next club meeting or event.
