Also have run tests with walk-up on water, walk-up was a flier and even a walk-out run after the double was picked up as you walked away from the line.
    Have done this in CKC WCX test. It is interesting!!!and you you can't say a word!

    defined as two marks presented before the dog is sent to retrieve. Blinds shall not be run between marks in Senior
    Hunting Tests.

    Please see the following rule changes forwarded from the AKC Performance Events Department.



    1. The first is concerning Senior Hunting Tests and Walk-Ups. The wording has changed to make it clear that a diversion shot will be included in a Senior Hunt Test AS WELL AS a WALK-UP. Before it has been interpreted that a walk-up could be optional at the Senior level. As of September 1, 2013, this is no longer an option. Please be aware of this change and expect to see this change at any test you are running. Please see the specific wording change indicated below
