A club is only as strong as its members. Bushkill is fortunate to have a small group of very devoted members that contribute their time, knowledge, and friendship to those interested in training their pointing dogs. Accomplishments of our members are a direct result of their time, effort, and the sometimes endless energy they have put into the success of their dogs.
Kevin & Tucker
In the fall of 2012 Kevin & his Brittany, Tucker, tested at the Utility Level at Del Val NAVHDA.
At the end of the day, a 204/204 point perfect score was given!
This is quite the accomplishment and we at Bushkill are very proud of Kevin and Tucker.
Charlie & Holden
