Welcome to wcohrc.com!
WCOHRC!!! West Central Ohio Hunting Retriever Club is the oldest hunting Retriever club in Ohio.
We have been training and testing dogs for over twenty years. We strive to bring good friends and great dogs together
in the same venue.
The WCOHRC was "conceived by hunters for hunters" to train and test our dogs in true life hunting situations. Those at our
local level train for those real life hunting situations as well as basic fundamental training drills.
- West Central Ohio HRC has been a charter member of the National Hunting Retriever Club, Inc since 1986.
- Is affiliated with the United Kennel Club (UKC), Inc, the world's largest working dog registry.
- UKC, Inc. licenses our hunts, maintains our retriever's points and awards the titles that our retrievers earn.
In the spring of the year WCOHRC holds our annual hunt test awarding ribbons, pride, and titles. We draw friends from
all over the country to our tests. We always have a great time meeting new friends, and swapping stories with the old friends.
While retriever training books and videos are helpful, training with a group of people allows you to meet others who have
had, or, are experiencing the same training issues you are having. Plus, many of the people with whom you train will motivate
you to improve the skills of your dog. All this training truly pays off when the ducks are circling, your heart is pounding,
and your little buddy is shaking with anticipation to leap into the frigid water to make it's master proud.
We invite you to check back often to see what WCOHRC is doing. We would, also, like to invite you to come to a meeting
or training day and meet people who have the same passion as you.

West Central Ohio HRC recently held our Annual Meeting. It was a great turn out. Our mebership is approxiamately 50 people now.
We would like to thank Dean Fields, Carolyn Elam, Stacy Nelson and Chris Valentie for the years of services they provide as members of the board. We would, also, like to introduce the new members of the board: Bud Wendel (President), MariJo Nootz (vice President), Tim Lewis (Secretary), and Jennifer Ison (Treasurer).
We wish them good luck for the next 2 years. I am sure they have positive plans for this club and will continue to come up with ideas to make our retrievers better at what we love to do.
Upland Test 2012
Another great time was had by all at this years upland hunt test. We saw a lot of great dog work and the weather, finally, cooperated for us.
Our judges were Tim Wakefield from Kentucky, Jeff Lindskoog from Indiana, Steve Earick from Indiana, and finally our very own Sam Melish from our club. They always do a great job judging and make for fun atmosphere.
We look forward to having our upland test next year at Mapleglen Farms. Dow Ulrich always treats us fairly and has a wonderful facility for hosting such an event.
