We're interested in finding a group of golden owners or trainer to help us get started in the field sport in Oklahoma. Our girl has a solid obedience foundation, loves water, good retriever, but we don't know how she feels about birds yet. I'm not having much luck finding people training and wondered if this group might have any suggestions?

We're not hunters but do love seeing a dog enjoying what it's been bred to do. Not interested in sending her to a trainer, but want to learn the game with her. Thanks for any suggestions you might offer!

Here are some leads for you, if you explain that you want to learn, you can generally find good people who are happy to help you. They won't train your dog for you but they will help you learn. There is a Golden Club event coming up that you might want to check out at the end of May, I attached the link below. Hope you'll give us updates.

Thank you both! This gives me a few new leads and for that we are grateful. Hopefully they will pan out and we will have a new sport to enjoy together.

Thank you Carolina mom for locating the thread—lots of good ideas. K9, COGRC was the first group I contacted but I haven’t had luck reaching them via their site or through FB but I will keep trying. Have reached out to some other groups so I very much appreciate all the leads. Thank you all!
