Dog club training licenses

A dog training club permit is issued to organizations that own or lease land for the purpose of training bird or hound dogs to retrieve, point, flush or track game. The species authorized for use under a dog club training license are captive ring-necked and reeves pheasants, bobwhite quail and other quail of the subfamily odontophorinae, gray, red-legged and chukar partridge and mallard ducks that are bred in captivity, as well as captive raccoons and rabbits.

Note: In addition to needing a dog club training license, a hound dog training enclosure permit is required to possess and use captive wild rabbits/hares, fox or coyote for dog training purposes.

All requirements of the bird dog and hound dog training license and hound dog training enclosures apply to a dog club training license except for the display of license requirements. The dog club training license shall be kept at the clubhouse or training grounds where the training activity is occurring. See regulations for complete details.
