Banjo’s Natural Ability

Banjo had her first NAVHDA hunt test this weekend.  The “puppy test” is a way to prove their natural ability, hence the name.  Pups are tested in Use of nose, Search (for birds), Water, Pointing, Tracking (down a pheasant with it’s flight feathers pulled), Desire to work, and Cooperation.  Banjo scored a perfect score, a 112!

Banjo's biggest fan!

 

As serious as the testing is, it's still a family friendly atmosphere!

A junior handler in the making.......

 

And last but not least, heading home with a sleepy boy and a happy dog......
