The Hunt Test Seminar is designed to review and explain the regulations and guidelines for the AKC Spaniel Hunt Test program. Attendance at the seminar is recommended for anyone interested in learning about the program as well as newcomers already participating in the program. In addition, all AKC judges are required to attend once every five years to maintain active status. Click here for much more information and to register.
Also at the spring show, MSDA is offering four “Instinct Clinics” to introduce sporting dogs to birds and AKC hunting events. In the clinic we will look at prey drive, biddability in association with retrieving, and the instinct to hunt and find birds. Instinct clinics will be held outside, in a field near the main show building. There will be no gunfire, but live birds (pigeons or quail) will be used.

What else has MSDA been up to lately? We’ve certainly been busy!
