Logansport, Indiana

The event was held on a perfect October Day.  Weather was great, we had a group of wonderful folks who shared the day with us.  

The grounds were a great choice and the dogs and their handlers all did a great job.

The water marks were on a newly dug pond, and the field work site was a great place to have land retrieves.    


The members of Hoosier Labrador Retriever Club  would like to

Thank Our W.C. Judge Susan Steffey for a great test. 

We would also like to thank all participants and visitors for attending our Working Certificate Test.  We look forward to seeing you and your beautiful Retrievers next year.
