    Default 2012 Retriever field trials & hunting tests

    Does anyone have additions or corrections to this schedule? It doesn't include picnic tests, but the best I could cobble together. Thanks!

    Love the posting to let people know about all the fun events. The only thing I would add is that the Arctic bird dog association is holding AKC pointing dog and spaniel hunt tests as well. Here is there link. http://arcticbirddog.com/

    How does a pointing breed hunt test work? Would a pointing lab count?
    Thanks,

    I'm only familiar with AKC retriever hunt tests/field trials so hope someone else can answer your question about what to expect, but pointing Labs aren't amongst the eligible breeds for pointer HTs. Here are some links for AKC event information.
