    Default Getting info from clubs not easy

    I don't know what it is but some clubs are hard to get any details out of them. I have that battle every month trying to populate a calendar. Jeesh. Formal club training starts in the spring but individuals group up and train all year doing something which is what you will need.
    The best move is to find out when their next club meeting is and go meet them. Hook up with someone who lives near you and train with them. You'll have to pay some dues (both $ and stand in a field throwing for hours) but you will learn a lot. Your new pup will get exposure.
    They are just finishing up the seasons hunt tests and field trials too so they may be harder to contact now. Then it will be hunting season. When you get your pup just play with him. Any general obedience puppy training will do. If you need help with that check into a basic obedience class when he is old enough. Get him out in public, socialized and by next spring when the formal club training starts you'll be ready.

    ducksandbrew,

    When you move to Fairbanks & get your new puppy, give a holler. Although FRC's classes won't start until next March, we'll have a potluck & meeting in October, and I (& others) would be happy to help you get your puppy started.
