About Us

  • Conservation  of game through the developement of trained retrievers.

  • Founded in 1983, NAHRA is the first organization dedicated to preserving the skills of a hunting retriever.

  • NAHRA originated the use of "standards" to test retiever skills using realistic hunting scenarios.

  • Dogs compete against a set of standards set forth in our rule book, not each other.

  • Advanced titles require dogs to demonstrate proficiency in both upland and waterfowl work.

  • Field tests are realistic, simulated hunting scenarios, with distances and conditions found in the field.

  • NAHRA has affilated clubs throughout the U.S. and Canada.
