Point Clubs



The Platte Valley Hunting Retriever Club (PVHRC) is a non-profit organization consisting of hunters dedicated to improving their hunting experience through the improvement of their retrievers. Over the past twenty plus years, club members throughout Colorado and surrounding areas have gathered to train and hunt their companions in a low pressure environment highly conducive to the amateur hunter.  If you would like to transform your canine friend into a highly effective retriever or bird flusher using humane methods in an entertaining environment, this organization is for you. 

In affiliation with the National Hunting Retriever Club, the Platte Valley Hunting Retriever Club is “Conceived by Hunters for Hunters.”
