The Retriever Challenge 

After 13 years of hosting the Retriever Challenge, Sean & Sherree Barbey have decided to retire. In 2008 they took over the Hunters Marsh Retrievers Challenge that was run by their dear friend Kim Moses, it was Kim's wish for them to one day take over the Challenge.  A technical pond was dug in 2007 and was designed by Sherree Barbey. Training dogs has always been a passion of theirs, they also enjoyed teaching so many handlers improve their skills.


As of October 2021, Kristen, Deb and Matt Beattie of "As You Wish Retrievers" are the new owners and hosts of the Challenge . Contact Kristen at (734) 934-1132 for more info.
