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.

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!
It's just a pond - and it's OK to go in!
If you weren’t able to join us – reading about it will hopefully "take you there" as much as possible, in words
