Several years ago while Don was in line for the bitch check at the National Amateur, I sat at a picnic table that the vet was using for supplies. More than just checking with a paper towel or tissue was done. Slides were taken of suspicious discharges. Several bitches were found to be either coming in or going out. They were scratched.
i remember a hunt test in Madison years ago where after the 3rd or 4th male lost his brain it was determined that a female that ran earlier was in fact in heat. Required picking up the entire test and moving to a different site.
Very inconvenient and time consuming. The offending handler was escorted off of the test grounds. My neutered male was among those that lost it to the hormones.

all they need to do is put one of the boys who has been bred near the bitch check station.
My guy will gladly let you know if anyone is in season, coming in, or coming out. The nose knows.

Common sense and honesty . Shouldn't need a Vet. to be at every event. People know when there bitch is in heat before or smells after. Being courteous to fellow contestants?
Never confuse activity with success.
