    Default AKC March 2013 Board Meeting

    Labrador and Golden Retrievers Eligible to Participate in the Spaniel (Upland) Hunting Tests

    The Board reviewed a request from The Labrador Retriever Club, Inc. and the Golden Retriever Club of America to participate in the Spaniel (Upland) Hunting Test program. Both breeds can currently participate in the Retriever Hunting Test. This request is in keeping with AKCís program allowing versatile hunting breeds to be tested in two hunting test programs if the test is consistent with the purpose for which the breed was developed. This will be discussed further at the April Board meeting.
    Under the staff proposal, for tests with a limit on the number of entries, Spaniel Clubs would have the option of giving preference to Spaniel entries, taking entries for Retrievers if the limit had not been reached. Likewise, Retriever Clubs would have the option of giving preference to Retriever entries, taking entries for Spaniels if the limit had not been reached.

    Curly-Coated Retrievers can run Spaniel Hunt tests. Expands the chance to have fun with our dogs for those of us that can not get to good hunting areas.
