WELCOME STATEMENT

The Maryland Sporting Dog Association (MSDA), a group of dog owners and friends working for the good of all dogs, but especially sporting dogs, is hosting this AKC Spaniel Hunt Test in conjunction with hosting an AKC Seminar for Judges and Handlers.

For Hunt Test registration, preference will be given to handlers who have registered for the associated AKC Spaniel Hunt Test Seminar for Judges and Handlers given on the same day at Rebel Ridge Farms. The Hunt Test is limited to 20 dogs. When the 20-dog limit is reached, a managed waitlist will become available. However, if the Hunt Test event is full and a handler who has registered for the seminar wants to enter the Hunt Test, MSDA holds the right to bump the last entered “non-seminar” dog and handler to the waitlist.

Hunt Test handler entrants can register as an individual for the seminar at a discounted cost of $25 which includes a light breakfast, lunch and liquid refreshments throughout the day.

Please visit our website for additional information and other MSDA events:
