Bitterroot Valley Retriever Club Montana
We work with the American Kennel Club (AKC) and United Kennel Club (UKC) registered bird dogs to make them better hunters and companions.
The BVRC host fun events such as licensed Hunting Retriever Club (HRC) and UKC hunt tests, and weekend training events for people and their dogs.
Contact the BVRC or view our BVRC Membership Application if you want to become a member.
You may contact Randy or Kimbra Huenergardt for more information and upcoming Labrador puppy litters.
