Spring is just around the corner, which means all over the country local gundog and breed clubs are planning their spring, summer and fall trials and events. Retriever guys, pointy dog enthusiasts and flushers have a dizzying array of local or regional field trials and hunt tests from which to choose. If you’ve never been to a gundog event, do yourself a favor ands seek one out.


Most trials and hunt tests are put on by local clubs who would love nothing more than to have people just come check it out. You could learn a lot just by watching great dogs and talented trainers. At the very least it will give you some idea of what both you and your dog are capable of and at best it will push you over the edge into a full-on gundog obsession, which is always a good thing.

Any readers have plans participate in or at least attend a gundog event this spring or summer?
