About Us 
Affiliated with the North American Hunting Retriever Association (NAHRA), Navesink River Hunting Retriever Club was founded in 1984 to promote the training of retrievers in New Jersey. Today the club continues this effort by hosting training sessions and licensed hunt tests as well as club Gun Dog tests throughout the year. With members from New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York, most of our events are held in the central NJ area. 

The dogs trained by our club members include Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers, Curly Coated Retrievers, Flat Coat Retrievers, Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers and Poodles.
