    DefaultEntered Senior for the first time

    I entered Amber in Senior for the first time. This is going to be an Akc test in mid June in Southern California and I am wondering about the weather conditions, in June we can have temps ranging from 60-s to over 100. I am going to be the Marshall for Senior so I won't have much time to spend with Amber and if I don't have an assistant mashall might end up running her either 1st or last just so I can marshall. I am currious how she will do in a test and how they will judge things like blinds. No Matter what it should be fun..

Height females 21.5 to 23.5 inches males 22.5 to 24.5 inches at the withers.

    You will need an assistant on land if nothing else! That's ridiculous if they aren't providing 2. Marshals do more than just check folks in and put them in the holding blind. And w/ SH, you are likely going to have to make a bunch of accomodations to the pros running at MH.

    On blinds, just suffice to say that handling generally needs to be pretty clean. I'd prepare for crossing pieces of land and shoreline blinds on water. Varying terrain on land that may suck them over...

    For a bit there, bulldogs were popular here, so practice someone shooting/throwing a bird as she's coming in w/ her memory bird. She can't drop it and switch so figure out how to deal w/ it. A whistle sit sometimes helps, followed by a come in whistle. Have fun! Anne

    You will have a blast!

    Here is what I saw a lot running and marshaling Senior this year:

    1) Down the shore water blinds;
    2) Land blinds tight to and deep of the flyer station; and
    3) Out of order walk up flyers (breaking birds).

    Spend a little time on these and you will be in better shape that most Am's.

    Good luck and have a great time!

    I got the workers schedule for next weekends hunt test and I am the only Marshall for Senior. There is only 24 dogs entered and I know alot of them and I know most of the Pro's running dogs in Senior so I should be OK, plus I have phone numbers and radio channels for the other marshalls.
