Waterloo Master Hunt Test
Manheim, Texas, March 2011
Hunt tests are AKC sanctioned and licensed events. Hunt tests judge a dog against a determined standard. AWRC sponsors hunt tests to members get the opportunity to be judged whether the member and the dog work well as a hunting team. The stakes are Junior, Senior and Master, you could add an AKC official title to your dog’s pedigree. For some, this is not about the title but rather the journey of learning to work together as a team, hunter and retriever. Hunt tests simulate real hunting situations, what a better way to “hunt” in the off season, to gear up for opening day.
