2021 Fall Spaniel Hunting Tests

Saturday September 18 (AKC Event #2021441910) and
Sunday September 19 (AKC Event #2021441911)
at Rebel Ridge Farms in Elkton MD.

MSDA held two days — two separate events — of AKC Spaniel Hunting Tests at Rebel Ridge Farms in Elkton MD. Rebel Ridge provides spacious grounds, ample ponds, and excellent fall cover. (They let the grass grow extra tall just for our hunt test weekend!)

One or more of the following breeds ran in the hunt tests: Boykin Spaniel, Cocker Spaniel, English Cocker Spaniel, English Springer Spaniel, Flat-Coated Retriever, Golden Retriever, Irish Water Spaniel, Labrador Retriever, Miniature Poodle, Standard Poodle and Welsh Springer Spaniel.

Thanks to all the human and canine participants, judges, gunners, committee members and all volunteers who helped make this weekend a success. Thanks also to members who attended the Members’ Open Day on Saturday for providing the awesome potluck dishes for the hunt testers’ buffet lunches for the weekend.

If you have any questions about how the hunt tests were conducted or have some follow-up comments, please contact the Event Chair, Steve Roth (huntingchair@mdsportingdog.org).
