    Outstanding. I'm getting a German Shepard in Feb and would love to run some hunt tests (retrievers) with her!

    The Boykin Spaniel was first recognized by AKC in 2009? and was placed in the Spaniel category thus allowed to run only spaniel (upland) hunt tests. The title for a Master Hunter was "MH" as a suffix. In December 2011 AKC recognized the Boykin as a versatile gun dog thus allowing them to compete in Retriever Hunt Tests alongside labs, chessies, goldens, flat coats, curly coats, etc. To differentiate the two titles AKC designated "MHR" for Master Hunter Retriever again as a suffix. I think NARHA also has a “MHR” title but is a prefix to the dogs name? As of today there are 5 "MHR" Boykins don't know exactly how many "MH" Boykins but there are no combined titled Boykins to date. Three of the 5 MHR Boykins competed in this year's Master Nationals with one getting a pass. It can be confusing but a "MHR" for a Boykin is exactly the same as a "MH" for a Lab.

    With AKC opening up Retriever Hunting Tests to more breeds, will there be an opportunity for retrievers to run Spaniel/Flushing HT's in the future??

    A great many ... maybe most ... retrievers are used as upland flushing dogs exclusively, as are used as waterfowlers exclusively

    Prolly a dumb question I guess ... it WOULD mean more revenue for the AKC, wouldn't it.

    That's a tough one to touch without bias - some spaniels being used exclusively as



    waterfowl dogs but not getting their crack at retriever hunt tests.

    Ang,

    Mr Montler would tickled to know that you have a Spaniel on your truck, until he found out it was a Boyk!

    Hope the holidays were great and that all is well in TX. See you when summer gets here.
