Flushing Dog Evaluation

These are fun events designed for the flushing dog and handler to practice “hunting” in the off-season. A course, usually running along the creek at the training grounds is set up with live birds planted in cover. Dogs are expected to find, flush and retrieve to hand, birds that are shot over the dog. The dog and hunter are evaluated on hunting ability, trained ability and hunting skills. Details on the evaluation are on the MHGDC Instructions for Flushing Dog Evaluation link below. Flushing dog evaluations are open to all flushing dogs.
