It’s just about field trial season here in New England. I try to make it to a couple of these each spring. I really enjoy walking the course and seeing the dogs run. This year I’m going to run Lexi in one or two of these trials, beginning with the one put on by the Setter Club of New England.
BTW: These field trials are for pointing dogs, and they’re run on planted quail (which are not shot or harmed). Any breed of pointing dog can be entered. That being said, pointers and setters win most of these events.
You can find out more about these upcoming spring trials by going to this Region 1 Association of New England Field Trial Clubs website. You’ll also find dates there for the fall, 2016, trials. And if you want to find out more about the Setter Club of New England’s trial in March, you can check them out on Facebook.
