The North Dakota Retriever Club owns 110 acres of some of the finest retriever training grounds in the area. Members have year round access to two large pieces of land with different styles of terrain and water to suit their current and future training needs. Access to these grounds is available to members only. If you would like to become a member please visit our Membership page for more details.

Weekly Training Group

Our weekly Wednesday training nights have been well attended, bringing together long term and new members to share their knowledge and gain valuable exprience. Many of those new members have gone on to received ribbons in competition in past years! In 2017 we’re planning to continue the format. We will continue  to focus on teaching concepts, how to better read your dog and demonstrate some yard work and drills to better develop your dog. The concepts, yard work and drills are designed to be useful at all training levels (begining, intermediate and advanced) with just a few minor adjustments for each. Training nights will be held every Wednesday (weather permitting) starting around 6pm on the Main Grounds. Training leaders each week are rotating with each taking a particular week each month.

Training Leaders:

1st week (May 3, 2017): Bob Louiseau (Ford F150)
2nd week: Ryan McMainnes (Maroon Chevy Avalanche)
3rd week: Doug Wambach  (Red Ford F150)
4th week: Roger Moltzan (Red Ford Ranger)
5th week: Justin Frye (White Ford F150)
