    15 years ago there were almost no Pro Trainers running AKC Hunt Tests (at least here in the Mid West) and you rarely had more than 30-40 dogs in a test. How times have changed.

    Minimum $5,000 if the dog is really doing Senior work. Dog would almost surely have 10-12 months of training to get to a Sr. level.
