This introductory clinic is designed to inform and instruct All Breed pointing dog owners who have an interest in participating in AKC sanctioned Field Trials. GSPCI has the honor of having a member who has been elected to the Bird Dog Hall of Fame, he will conduct the initial class room instruction and will share his personal experiences of Field Trialing, followed by actual Field instruction and judging by experienced judges. Stakes will be available for dogs at all levels of performance. Please contact Dave Wolfe at email@example.com or 815.806.0071 to reserve your space. $15.00 per dog fee will be charged to cover the cost of birds.
