Field Trial dogs are the "rock stars" of the performance dog world. You need to go and witness one to really understand what they have to do. Professional handlers with 12-16 dogs on their truck as well as amateurs with one or two dogs. Derby, Qualifying, Amateur, and Open stakes are held at most. Most of the dogs have been trained for this competition from 6 months old. A 100 dog Open stake gives first thru fourth place and several JAM's (Judges Award of Merit). Same with other stakes. A real tough game to play.

Hunt Tests in AKC or UKC are more realistic and attainable for the average person. Check the AKC and UKC websites for tests near you.
