This post is just to see if any on here are interested... The British Field Trial Society of America will be running several trials in the upcoming months as well as the spring! I believe the Gulf Coast chapter will be running some soon, and I know our two chapters in the northern parts of MS will run a few novice and open stakes.
I know a lot of readers here have British lines, but that's not required. Any labrador is welcome! The trials are walk-up with hand thrown, box launched, or live flushed game. They are run under the rules of the KC, and we have several A & B Pannel judges as well as some apprentice judges.
Definitely not an attempt to take away from AKC trials, AKC tests, UKC tests, etc. It's just a different way to have fun with your dog! We do award those who place, but we aren't running under any kennel club (just following the rules of one) so, you get bragging rights and a cool trophy! But hey, your dog doesn't know what all of her initials stand for anyway!
Post here or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you want more info! I would love to meet new folks and run dogs on a fun day's shooting together!
