Dave Wolcott has been training retrievers since 1984. From the start he has trained scores of gun dogs, hunt test dogs and field trial dogs alike.  He has trained numerous dogs that have made the National Derby List and has trained and competed dogs to the title of Qualified All Age.  

Hillcrest Retrievers is located in Central Maryland with easy access from I-70.  We train locally on large beautiful farmland with rolling terrain and ponds located in the middle of large fields.  We also have regular access to technical water located in Delaware and Maryland's Easter Shore.  

We offer field trial training and handling of pups from approximately six months of age through All-Age competition.  We also offer obedience training beginning at five months of age.  The obedience course is six weeks long in duration.  In addition we offer day training to people who prefer to train occasionally and/or wish to learn how to train and handle their dog on their own.
