Our History

 

Iterations of our organization and the use of what is now known as the Flaherty Field Trial Area date back to the 1930's and has a rich history in hosting premier dog trialing events, providing hunter education, and promoting wildlife conservation. Rich Garini,

Association Historian, has chronicled the establishment and development of these grounds and the Association over the years. Please read his detailed summary of "Flaherty History".
