Rowdy got his first ribbon yesterday, akc senior hunt test.
The test was a really hard test. Eight dogs of 29 passed. There were 21 dogs carried to the water series. One of the passes was to a MH dog that was down sandbagging so the owner could maintain judging eligibiltiy for senior level.
Some features of the test that I thought were hard:
Land-the blind was only about 50 yds or so away from the fall area of the flyer and at about the same distance.
Water-the blind was beside a pennisula directly across from the dog. The dog had to avoid the point then swim almost parallel to the pennisula.
