AKC Hunt Tests

We participate in seven or eight hunt tests each year, running anywhere between one and five dogs.  Most of the time we participate in all levels of the tests - Master, Senior, Junior - depending on what dogs we are running.

Typically, we just run in tests that are within a few hours drive from us.  That includes events in the states of Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and sometimes Illinois and Pennsylvania.  Clubs that we run at include our own Backwater Retriever Club in Indiana as well as Marshbanks Golden Retriever Club of South Central Michigan, Fort Detroit Golden Retriever Club, Labrador Retriever Club, Buckeye Retriever Club and Greater Pittsburgh Golden Retriever Club, to name a few.  Links to many of these clubs can be found oun our Links page.

We have met a lot of great people through our participation in these events and look forward each year to getting reacquainted with everyone.  That's not to mention that we have seen some great dogs and dog work over the years and also look forward to that each year.
