Northern California Fun Field Days April 14th

Vizsla Club of Northern California Fun Field Day

April 14, 2012

Venue: Hastings Island Hunting Preserve, 7758 Hastings Island Road, Rio Vista, CA 94571

Starting time: 8:00 am until we are done (rolls and coffee will be available for early birds)

"The VCNC Fun Field Day is a great opportunity to expose your Vizsla to the

joys of hunting game birds in the field. 

It is particularly geared towards novice dogs of any age
and their novice owners.

However advanced handlers and their experienced Vizslas

are also very welcome to attend in order to

fine-tune their hunting skills.

You are given the unique chance to participate in

training runs, hunt game birds in the field, get advise,

soak up the atmosphere and enjoy a day with

many other Vizslas, their owners, friends, and families.

Come and see what field work is all about,

and your dog will love you even more!

Vizslas of all ages and experience levels are welcome.

The training courses will be run like hunt tests or field trials.

There will be two fields set up. Course one will be

designated for novice dogs with a special run for the puppies;

course two for dogs at advanced and at intermediate level.

We will have a formal starting line and a course that leads

to a bird field with planted game birds.

There will be judges / mentors riding along on horses

ready to give you helpful feedback and answer questions.

It is important that you let us know at which level your

dog is and also whether you want no shots to be

fired at all, or just from a training pistol.

Shot guns will be used in the Advanced Stake;

blank guns in the Intermediate Stake. 

If your dog has never been blanked or shot over,

entry him/her in the “Novice / Beginner Non-shooting Stake”."
