Saturday August 17th, 2013 Field Day for Flushing Hunt Tests
The Heart of Texas Spaniel Club invites Labrador and Golden owners to attend an AKC Spaniel Training Seminar that will be held on August 17th.
The AKC upland flushing hunt test is a fun game that provides a venue for developing upland skills in the field with your dog and just having fun participating with other dog lovers. Labs & Goldens are now able to compete in these events.
