The Vancouver Island Pointing Dog Club meets approximately once a month and members are invited to bring their pointing dog for a training session. Our more experienced and knowledgable members will discuss equipment and demonstrate training methods and members will have the opportunity to work with their own dogs on those topics covered. The sessions are applicable to all levels, from puppies to trained adults.
