Hunt Test Question

4080 Views 36 Replies 19 Participants Last post by  Backcast
In a SH or MH test the dog is sent on the go bird and picks it up,instead of returning to the handler the dog goes to the second mark and without dropping the first bird,get them both in his mouth and then returns to the line.
How is this judged and why ?

In my mind it's not a switch because you said the dog picked up the first bird, THEN came and picked up the second bird.
For a switch, you have to establish a hunt on a bird, then leave that bird to pick up another. That's not what you said happened.
I'd call the dog back, and ask the handler what he/she is planning on doing about that. :wink:
