Today from 9am until 4pm, thirty Vizsla owners got together for a Demystifying Field Trials and Hunt Test seminar.

First off was two hours in the club room.  Randy Berry, professional trainer and handler, explains to Vizsla owners the "how-tos" of field trialing.  Good questions and discussions about the sport of field trialing.

Then it was out into his training field for how he starts out a very young pup; a little older pup; then Bailey was used to show green broke dog field work and finally finished dual champion Vizsla, Tommy by Tommy.

A good lunch was cooked up and then we all went back into the club house for a couple more hours on hunt test overview and more on field trialing by long time Vizsla owners and judges.

Great sharing of knowledge and stories of how to succeed in these sports.  Thanks to those that put this together.  Time very well spent!
