    We picked up our started title last summer pretty easily. Still working towards running good blinds before I will even attempt intermediate. No rush at all. Just trying to be prepared for what's in store at the test.

    Great offer from Steve B !!!

    But it seems to me that if the dog has been hunting and has retrieved crippled birds, that your dog has indeed seen and handled shot flyers!!! Just not in a hunt test scenario.

    Nothing better than simulating the situation as best you can ahead of time.

    True he has seen shot fliers in a hunting scenario, but a hunt test is a different level of excitement - not more or less excitement but different. Besides he has broke before in a hunting situation, so he could very well break at a HT as well. Training for that not to happen, but you never know what he might be thinking while sitting at the line!

    Hunter your allowed a controlled break, but NARHA you can talk to your dog so talk to him and don't let him break
