Our next hunt test will be spring 2018, see you then!
Please visit the Field Trial News Colorado Calendar for other hunt tests through other clubs.
During a hunt test, dogs are judged against a standard. This allows for every dog the ability to pass their particular level. Hunt tests are also exclusively done on foot. The three AKC titles that can be awarded are a JH (Junior Hunter), SH (Senior Hunter), and MH (Master Hunter). For a JH title, a dog must have four qualifying runs. Junior Hunters are judged on hunting, bird finding, pointing and trainability. The judging scale is from 0-10. The average score for the four categories must total seven or higher and no single score can be below a four. Senior Hunter and Master Hunter tests include judging for retrieving and honoring.
