  • American Water Spaniels & Hunt Tests

    From AKC's Board of Director's meeting on Feb. 11, 2011:

    American Water Spaniel Eligible for Retriever Hunting Tests

    The Board reviewed a request from the American Water Spaniel Club to permit the American Water Spaniel to enter the Retriever Hunting Test. Following a motion by Dr. Garvin and seconded by Mr. Marden, it was VOTED (unanimously) that the American Water Spaniel will become eligible to enter the Retriever Hunting Test program staring April 1, 2011. Titles earned by American Water Spaniels in Retriever Hunting Tests will be designated with a R to differentiate the title from those earned in Spaniel Hunting Tests. (example: JHR)

    WOW!! I remember AKC years ago making the American Water spaniel Club make a choice of which hunt tests they wanted to run in. They would only let them run in one or the other. I think it was a big debate for American Water Spaniel people for years. Does this allow the AWS to run in both AKC hunt tests ( spaniel and retriever) or did they just decide to leave the spaniel hunt tests so they could go with the retriever hunt tests?
