About Our Hunting Retriever Club

We are the Fox River Valley Hunting Retriever Club (FRVHRC), a local affiliate of the Hunting Retriever Club, Inc., an International body that sanctions Retriever Hunt Tests. We are nonprofit, and located in the Chicagoland area of Illinois. 


Our membership consists primarily of hunters who strongly believe that one of the best conservation tools available is a well-trained retriever. But we also have members who are simply breed fanciers dedicated to retaining the sporting purposes of their dogs. We also have dog owners who simply want better trained pets. 

Our unifying chief goal is a simple one - to produce better trained retrievers. And we have a lot of fun doing it. We share a common affection for retrievers, and a common goal of making them better trained. These commonalities make for an amiable atmosphere between members. 


FRVHRC Hunt Test is 9/17 & 9/18 2022 @ Richmond Hunt Club.

We will be holding our club banquet Saturday after the test at Lucky E Kennels in Ringwood, IL. Cost is $10.00 per plate.

Hunt Test Raffles this year are listed below. You do not need to be present to win. If interested please reach out to a FRVHRC member and let them know you would like to purchase a ticket.

For any club questions, send an email to: frvhrc@gmail.com . The email will be directed to the appropriate FVRHRC Club Officer.
