So i'm pretty new to the HT/FT community. I an currently starting to run hunt test, have gotten addicted to training and wondering about Field Trials. How come you don't see a lot of people running both? I haven never been to a Field Trial and understand that distances are longer and it is dog against dog instead of dog against standard. How do people train differently?(other than distance) I would like to possibly start running FT when I get my dog to an HRCH/MH title. Just curious in the major differences. I don't quite understand the differences in the titles either but I'm sure the rule book has those. Don't be too harsh, I'm new to the whole sport and want to run my dog in just about anything I can but from what I've read/talked to others about, you need atleast a HRCH dog before even being about to compete in a FT. I'm sure this subject has come up before but I think it would be a good thread for new comers like me to the sport. I've also seen stuff on SRS but haven't even looked into it except a quick glance at the website.
