Hunt Tests - Fun Tests

2017 Fun Test

Fun for dogs at all levels, Master, Senior, Junior, and just getting started. Fun for Handlers at all levels, Experienced and just getting started.

The Fun Test is a great opportunity for new handlers to gain some experience with running dogs in an organized event, and a great opportunity for experienced handlers to see how much brushing up needs to be done before the start of the hunt test season. Above all, the Fun Test is a great opportunity to spend some time in the field with your dog, and with your fellow club members.

The Fun Test will be set up similar to a Hunt Test, but with relaxed rules, and a lot of help for the new handlers. There will be 3 land marks set up that can be run as a triple, a single and a double, or 3 singles (your choice).   Don't forget the blind.

 

This is not a training day and the same expectations of a hunt test apply.  Ribbons may be awarded for qualifying work in the field.

This will be an opportunity for new handlers to gain some experience running their dogs in a mock hunt test and get some great critiquing back from our judging panel. This will also be a humbling opportunity for experienced handlers to see how much brushing up needs to be done before the start of hunt test season!

For those who are not running dogs this early this fun test is a great opportunity to learn first-hand the mechanics of a hunt test and having a fun time in the process.
