Continued: Anderson: Dogs have a field day at Kelley Farms

Though bird hunting is far more popular among men than women, retriever training and handling is somewhat more equally distributed between the sexes.

Making the point, Kathy Strong of Cumberland, Wis., was on hand with her dogs Wednesday evening, as were Julie Mach of Harris, Minn., and Linda Kiey of St. Paul, among others.

Mach owns three Labradors, and has been a member of Northern Flight since 1990. Also a longtime club member, Kiey owns two golden retrievers.

“We met 25 years ago, through dogs,’’ Mach said. The pair travel to hunt tests throughout Minnesota and neighboring states.

Wet, well-exercised and tired, Mach’s Labs and Kiey’s goldens had been crated for the ride home, as had the 15 or so other dogs in this group.

Yet no one seemed in a hurry to leave.

Instead, small talk ensued among the handlers; some of it, inevitably, about dogs, some about the hunt test this weekend and some about nothing much at all.

This was summer in Minnesota, after all, and friends with common interests were hanging out, satisfied that their dogs had made a little progress, and would make still more on the next training day.
