This year has been a hell of a ride! We are very grateful for the chance to train and compete in trials across the US. For us, our business is built around the relationships we get to build with dogs, and the owners. While this year has certainly disrupted that, we are very grateful for the Whisky River Gun Dog family and all the support you have provided. Without you, none of this would be an opportunity.
