HWA's summer-event:

June 2016 - Bridget Bodine Retriever Seminar notice
3 days of training at Bridget Bodine's RETRIEVER SEMINAR

LOOKING BACK TO LAST SUMMER…

In June, 2016, some of us were fortunate to participate in HWA’s Bridget Bodine's Retriever Seminar, held at

DeCoverly Kennels in Eastern PA.  


We were a relatively small group, which made it possible for each dog/handler team to get a lot of individual attention.

Libby, owned and handled by John Bell, started her water retrieves with a splashy dog-paddling approach to swimming.

– a fast learner when to came to retrieving birds.

Every HWA Nationals' event has a

story to tell… and the same held true

in Sept. 2016:

With pleasure,we recall  the great work accomplished by some of the Airedales we saw, as well as remembering those who came to have fun, observe, learn & just have new experiences with their dogs.


If you attended the 31st Annual HWA Nationals, we hope our report brings back good memories.

Ron Swisher & Scarlett

Our events provide a wonderful experience

for Airedales both young & "old", and from "newbies" to seasoned hunters… and their

owners, too! It's all about gathering together.

The dogs teach us so much, and everyone

learns, laughs, & has fun!
