A mock hunt test is a great way for a new handler to learn about AKC hunting tests in a low key, fun event. For the more experienced handler, a mock hunt test is a nice way to gauge your dog’s progress as we head into the fall hunting test season. Even if you don’t plan on participating in hunting tests, it can be a lot of fun to see how both you and your dog perform in a fun competition. All dogs will receive scores based on AKC hunting test rules. Experienced club members will be available to provide encouragement and coaching for new handlers.
