April 10, 2009, Newsletter Issue #282: Field Trials for Hunting Breeds

Tip of the Week

If you own a hunting breed of dog, you may enjoy field trial competitions that test your dog's abilities to find and flush birds and then retrieve them. There are trials for pointers, retrievers and spaniels among others.

Hunting trials is another consideration. In this competition, a hunting dog is tested not against other dogs, but against a standard. Your dog will be put through exercises including blind retrieves, honoring another dog's retrieve, and marking multiple birds prior to retrieval.
