Hunt Test Question

4087 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 ?

If we plant a blind with a bunch of birds during training, my Gloden will always bring two back....Heck I've even seen him get THREE!

Never in the course of a multiple set of marks though. I'm not sure how that would be scored, especially with regards to switching, but I would think he could be marked down in trainability. But I'm not a judge, it is an interesting question though.
