More details on HRLRC training categories:

Advanced: The advanced dog is working at WC or JH level. This means that the dog readily picks up bumpers and birds, returns to the handler reliably, and ideally is getting close to delivering to hand.

Beginner: The beginner dog category includes puppies and any older dogs that are still refining skills like their hold or recall.

The two remaining training days for this season’s scheduled HRLRC training dates are
Saturday, June 23
Suday, July 8
WC/X test: Saturday August 11 Judge – Mary Ann Abbott
