If you're in WI I would opt to pursue the AKC format. There are plenty opportunities and Clubs around.

And ESS can run NAHRA retriever hunt tests. I've seen ESS do very well at those tests. Your closest NAHRA clubs will be in Minnesota. Probably a bit of a drive for you.

Sometimes there are too many options! And too many rules to learn!

I sure enjoy the UKC HRC tests and fellowship. There is a recent video released that covers the history and development of the UKC HRC and also speaks to how the AKC and NAHRA groups came into existence. In it you will hear from the founders about the philosophy and intentions around hunt tests.

Great video. I guess at the end of the day you canít go wrong with either organization. Itís about having fun and spending time with your dog and friends. Kind of the same reasons I hunt I guess.
