    These Hunting Tests are held under the Rules and Procedures of the AMERICAN KENNEL CLUB (AKC).

    Tests are open to all AKC registered Flushing breeds, including those that have been granted Indefinite Listing Privileges (ILPs). 


    Judging Method

    Dogs will be judged on their breed's hunting style.

    Each national breed club competing in flushing hunt tests, has a written description of their breed's hunting style.

    Those documents can be found on the American Kennel Club website at this link:

    AKC Hunting Styles

    IMPORTANT NOTE: 

    • Bitches in season will not be permitted to run

    RUNNING ORDER: 

    Dogs may be run in an order different from the order in which they are drawn when, in the opinion of the Judges or Hunting Test Committee,

    such will result in a reasonable and desirable saving of time or in the conduct of the event. This provision does not apply to late arrivals.

    BIRDS:

    Quail and/or chukar partridges shall be used in the land series of Junior, Senior and Master Hunting Tests.

    PRIZES:

    Standard AKC Ribbons to all dogs receiving a qualifying score.
