The dfw area has a lot of akc pointing dog clubs. A quick google search will provide with all the info as well as the AKC website will tell you all the clubs in the area. They are usually very welcoming to new comers and most clubs, at least the ones in various states I have been a member of, have "training" days. Even if you are not interested in competing in any akc events it is a good place to meet fellow bird dog enthusiasts and possibly form some friendships, training tips and support the local breed club of your choice. Just a thought.
