A – Registration into the Great Lakes Sport Dog Association is required and that can be done at the event. No other ‘Formal Paperwork’ is required. We allow ALL canines of ANY breed or mix to participate in our events. If your Canine is ‘Papered’ with another Registry, please bring a copy.
Q - What are the rules of the Great Lakes Sport Dog Association?
A - click here.
Q – What do I need to bring to a Hunt Test?
A - A current Michigan Small Game License, Shotgun and Shells, and of course your Dog. A folding chair and drinking water would make you more comfortable as you watch the event.
Q – As an average Hunter, I have never entered a formal Hunt Test and am not interested in competing on a Pro level. Is this something that I can benefit from?
A – We certainly hope so!! Great Lakes Sport Dog was formed with the average hunter/trainer in mind. We cater to those that have the desire of working with a well trained sporting dog, those that are just starting the ‘Testing Game’, and those that just want to refine the working relationship of Canine and Handler in the field. Our Tests are an excellent training tool to recognize ‘issues’ that may arise in the field and to prompt further training. Great Lakes Sport Dog Association titles are awarded for canine performance, and our friendly testing format appeals to those wanting to have a great time with their dogs.
Q - Can I bring my family and friends to see my dog work, or just attend to see what it’s all about?
A - By all means please do so. Great Lakes Sport Dog Events are all family oriented and tend to be great outings for friends and family. Due to obvious safety issues very few are able to be in the field during the actual tests, but watching from a distant sideline is common.
