We're dormant for club activities during hunting seasons.
A hunt test is an event at which the natural ability and training of hunting dogs are evaluated against a written standard. Each dog that meets this standard earns a pass. The standards for the various levels are designed to approximate the situations and conditions encountered when hunting. Dogs with sufficient passes earn various titles.
Hunt tests are organized by the American Kennel Club (AKC rules), the North American Hunting Retriever Association (NAHRA rules), and the United Kennel Club (UKC) under the auspices of the Hunting Retriever Club (HRC).
AKC awards the titles of Junior Hunter (JH), Senior Hunter (SH), and Master Hunter (MH) for performance in hunt tests.
NAHRA awards the titles Started Hunting Retriever (SR), Working Retriever (WR), Master Hunting Retriever (MHR), and Grand Master Hunting Retriever (GMHR).
