Hunt Test Training

We train to the hunt test standard and regularly participate in HRC/ UKC hunt tests. Retriever Hunt Tests are a fantastic way to test your dog’s skills while also keeping them sharp in the off-season.

Handler Fees will apply.

Huge announcement! Origin is thrilled to introduce its newest member: FTW Think Twice Beyond a Shadow of Doubt - “Maple”.
We recently had an incredibly rare opportunity to acquire an accomplished British Field Trial retriever and we jumped on it. Maple has achieve a field trial 1st, 3rd, and two Gun’s Choice Awards which are reserved for the finest gundog in the field.
Yesterday Maple arrived in the US safely. Now, she will continue her training and we are excited for her future. Maple is now the only FTW (British field trial winner) golden residing on the North American Continent.
Buckle up boys and girls.
