The Tulsa Retriever Club membership embodies handler's and retriever's who participate in hunt tests, field trails or both. The club hosts two hunt tests and two field trials a year (spring and fall). 

We take pride in putting on first class events on excellent grounds in order to advance your retriever to the next level. As an AKC club, we are required to meet AKC's rules and regulations ensuring that your retriever is given the best opportunity for success. Stay tuned to our Event Calendar for information on our upcoming hunt tests and field trials. 

HUNT TEST - What is a hunt test? A hunt test is an event at which the natural ability and training of a working retriever is evaluated against the AKC hunt test written standard. Each dog that meets this standard earns a PASS. Tulsa Retriever Club's hunt tests are organized in accordance with the rules and regulations set-forth by the American Kennel Club (AKC).

AKC awards the titles of Junior Hunter (JH), Senior Hunter (SH) and Master Hunter (MH) for performance in hunt tests. The standards for the various levels are designed to approximate the situations and conditions encountered when hunting. Dogs are required to prove the ability to find and retrieve birds.

FIELD TRIAL - What is a field trial? A field trial is a highly competitive event at which working retrievers compete directly against one another in a stake. Considered much more competitive and technical than a hunt test, a field trial retriever requires a high level of training - dogs will retrieve marks at far longer distances and in a more complex path. First, second, third and fourth places are awarded as are Reserve Jams and Jams - Jams are awarded to retrievers who show perserverance and trainability. It is not guaranteed, however, that a Jam will be awarded or even a place other than first will be awarded. There are also various stakes in field trials - Derby, Qualifying (QAA), Amateur and Open. Tulsa Retriever Club field trials are organized in accordance with the rules and regulations set-forth by the American Kennel Club (AKC).
