2014 dog of the year Kelly w/ owner Bob Wimpenny
Colorado is home to many rattlesnakes. Every year, veterinarians treat dogs that have been bitten on local hiking trails, backyards or hunting fields. You can help your dog avoid a potentially deadly encounter by entering your dog in the CGDA Rattlesnake Avoidance Course. It is featured annually at the International Sportsmen’s Exposition in January at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. For more information see Snake Avoidance Clinic link above or contact Fred Prior at email@example.com
The purpose of our Club is to provide a place for members to train their pointing Dog(s) year round and extended the hunting experience through friendly, competitive field trials. We have approximately 150 acres of land 12 miles north of Strasburg, Co. We have a spacious club house and for your convenience a porta potty is there year round.
We strive to promote the pointing dog breed not for profit or personal gain but to promote upland game hunting, dog training, field safety and to share and teach others.
Our field trials consist of 2 different formats. One is a chukar hunt where there is 1 dog a handler and or shooter and 1 judge. Second is a CGDA pairs which is based on a NSTRA trial where there are 2 dogs 2 handlers and or shooters and 2 judges. Each of these has a novice division. See rule book for more information. All duties are performed by member volunteers.
Our field trials typically run February through May. These trials are for fun and friendly competition and can also be used as a training experience, especially for the new member. During the rest of the year we have a summer picnic along with a Christmas party. We also have a booth at the International Sportsmens Exposition every year.
CGDA is a network of seasoned hunters willing to share their wisdom with you. Occassionaly we have bird sources available for our members training needs. We are strictly nonprofit.
We judge, plant birds, chair trials attend fundraisers and various other tasks for the club. We occasionally have clinics on judging as well as dog training clinics with a professional dog trainer.
