Training for Hunt/Field events- Maine-ish?

Hi There! I'm looking for advice and or resources to move forward with Hunt Tests. I live in southern Maine and want to know if there's anyone who offers classes or training sessions in this general area. I have purchased several books, watched hours of YouTube videos and read the guidelines for AKC, CKC and UKC test. I would love to work with someone.
Thanks! : )

Have you checked your local Golden Retriever club? Most have a group of people interested in field activities. See the Golden Retriever Club of America for a list of local clubs. Yankee Golden Retriever Club may have some leads for you although many of their activities are in MA and field activities often in West Thompson, CT.

Find your local retriever clubs. They often have classes especially in the winter to get your ready for spring. AKC, HRC or NAHRA are 3 groups to look at. Visit their websites for more information. I think we have a sticky on this page to direct you to their websites.
