Message from the Director

Western Region Members,

Fall is upon us in the Walla Walla Valley, and I love it. This time of year means cool mornings, college football, playoff baseball (including the Yankees), Fall Tests, and most important HUNTING SEASON!!

We start Pheasant season the 21st of October and I can’t wait. Over the last two years my ability to enjoy hunting has been very limited. This year I will be able to enjoy our dogs and get out and hunt all I want.

Fall Testing has started in the WR with the Solms/AZP at Hysham, MT hosted by Mike Kennedy. The full test took place on Saturday, September 30th. Blair vom Riverwoods, owned and trained by Randy Blanchard received a Prize 1. Hoyt von Kings Crossing and Etta vom Schwarzen Seil also Prized.

The 2017 Western Region Annual Raffle Drawing will take place October 15th. If you have not returned your ticket stubs and checks please get them in ASAP so they can be included in the drawing. If you need additional tickets please do not hesitate to contact Frank O’Leary at 509-520-7483 or

The WR’s second test will take place October 13th – 15th in Walla Walla, WA. Again the test is full and we will have a Solms/AZP/VGP/ Zuchtschau. Also, we will have social activities for all WR members including a Clay Pigeon Shooting Horse Race Saturday afternoon and a dinner that night. If you wish to participate in either or both events please Frank O’Leary at 509-520-7483 or

Enjoy the Fall and good luck with your training and hunting. We look forward to seeing  you at the fall test and hopefully during hunting season.  Please remember to sell your raffle tickets!
