The Chapter encourages members to share training and testing experience with other owners of the same or similar breeds, advice on training techniques, assistance with becoming a better handler and trainer. Whatever problem you may be experiencing someone has had the same issue.
Our members own a wide variety of versatile hunting dog breeds. Members can offer personal experiences from their own testing, training and hunting experiences. The opportunity exists to watch these dogs in the field to help with decision on whether a specific breed is right for you. That experience can be very helpful for the new owner or handler.
Our Chapter will offer many indoor and outdoor training sessions, possibly a Handler Clinic, mock test, and formal Test during the year for the benefit of members who are training pups or working toward a higher level test such as Utility.
We encourage family participation. Members of Prairie Vista encourage the participation by junior members in dog training and handling, and in gaining a better understanding of the value of a well-trained hunting dog(s). Family participation is a core belief in the chapter and we encourage all members of a family to learn to handle the families dog(s).
