    DefaultHunt Tests vs Field Trials

    Could someone tell me the difference between Hunt Tests and Field Trials - I know I could probably look this up and figure it out myself, but I thought someone might be able to enlighten me and others at the same time.

    It's the little league world series (hunt tests) vs the major league world series. (trials)

    Hunt tests test a dog against a standard. You get a pass/fail. Depending on the venue you usually start out at a beginning level and have to pass that a certain amount of times to move up a level.

    A field trial is a competition to pick the best dog.

    Hunt tests can be run from a novice to the very top which requires very in depth training and skill.

    Field trials are the top of the game......trialing requires a lot of money......many, many thousands of dollars, it requires the best trainers and dogs in the world.


    Of course there's a lot more to it than the several points I mentioned.

    Thanks - that's kind of what I wanted to know - I knew that one was considered "more realistic", and one "not as hard", etc.
