What we're about

Cascade is an official Hunting Retriever Club (HRC club). We have been in existence since 2013. Our members continue to work hard to support retriever training days and events.

During the off-season from Upland & Waterfowl hunting, Cascade puts on a monthly training day (February-August) at Pat Murphy’s Training Grounds in Snohomish, where we work on land and water retrieves (dependent on weather conditions), providing dead birds to train with. We are a fun, friendly, inviting group of dog owners, looking to continue training our dogs to become the best retriever they can. We encourage new owners to this sport, come out and see what we are about, you and your dogs are always welcome!! Many members are willing and able to take some time to work one-on-one with you as you start out with your pup (or older dog who is just starting).

As a Chapter of HRC, Region 14, Cascade puts on a yearly Hunt Test the first weekend in April at our training grounds. We are always in search of volunteers, which is a great way for new handlers to observe and learn!

If you are interested in joining or learning more about Cascade HRC, please contact Boyd Ulsh at (425) 501-3989 by text or phone.

CHRC training day

Pat Murphy's Training Grounds

The 2022 dog training season begins. The CHRC Board is looking forward to a great season this year.

Cascade Retriever Club training day at Pat Murphy's training grounds in Snohomish (near Monroe). Train with dead ducks on land and water. Join us for a fun day with a great group of people and fantastic dogs! Whether your dog is old or young, experienced or just starting out, purebred or not, training days are for anyone who wants to give their dogs some birds to enhance their natural ability to retrieve.

Setup starts at 9:30am, Training to follow. If you are available to help with setup, please show up at 9:30. If you are there to help, you also can give your input on how you'd like to see things setup for the training scenario!

Moving forward with our training days, if you bring a dog out to train, please come prepared to volunteer and help. If you can sit in a blind and load one bucket full of ducks in the winger, that helps a lot! Or maybe you can spend 30 minutes running the line... The training days are not supposed to be designed as a service, but as a club event where we all help each other. We want EVERYONE to have a good time and get a chance to train, so we will be expecting attendees who are training a dog, to spend a little bit of time volunteering. We are trying to help each other and help our dogs grow and have fun! You can come out and observe as well, guests welcome anytime.

Please RSVP for planning purposes. RSVP using this forum or call or text[masked] or email [masked]). Looking forward to seeing you!

Training Day fees:
$25.00 for 1st dog - $10.00 for 2nd dog

Guests ALWAYS WELCOME!! If you'd like to come out and meet us, see what we are about, see how the training days flow, feel free to stop by. :)

Members: $5.00 off total cost of your training day

Membership: $35 family or $25 single membership

Volunteers are always Appreciated & Welcome!! Possibilities for volunteering/helping would be: Set up, Winger Operators, Line help, Take down, and more... Each job does not last all day if everyone does a little.

Our grounds are just off Hwy 2. There is a big lodge building as well as a horse blanket business next to the Hwy. Turn into the paved area and follow the gravel road across the RR tracks, then follow signs out to our grounds.

Happy training! (and stay safe)
