Dogs Afield - Event List

AKC Hunt Tests provide a venue for testing the dog’s natural and trained ability to hunt.  At these tests, dogs compete against set performance standards for qualifying scores.  Dogs may accumulate qualifying scores and eventually attain titles at the varying levels of difficulty: Junior Hunter (JH), Senior Hunter (SH), and Master Hunter (MH).

  • Junior Hunter Stake – tests the dog’s ability to retrieve single marks on land and in water and to deliver to hand (among other things).
  • Senior Hunter Stake – tests the dog’s ability to be steady to shot, retrieve double marks on land and in water, honor, and a walk-up (among other things).  Blind retrieves on land and water are required as well.
  • Master Hunter Stake – tests the finished hunting retriever.  Dogs must exhibit extreme control and complete multiple marks and blinds in simulated hunting situations.

For the rules and regulations governing AKC Hunt Tests, please see Regulations and Guidelines for AKC Hunting Tests for Retrievers.
