Hunting Dog Workshop Feb 20-22, 2009

Last year I attended excellent Hunting Dog Workshop "Fun Follows Function" organized by Sian Kwa and Donna Schafer. This year the workshop is back on February 20-22 in North Carolina.

Two German hunters have been invited to give presentations and demonstrations about hunting with Dachshunds in the country of origin of the breed and to provide hands-on training to both handlers and their dogs.

The first 2 days of the workshop will be held at a 300 acre farm in Oxford, North Carolina. The final day will be held in Henderson, North Carolina, at the same licenced fox preserve as last year.

Friday February 20, 2009: is centered around breeding and selecting for hunting, focused on and emphasizing Dachshunds as a hunting breed.

Saturday February 21, 2009: is entirely dedicated to the blood tracking training for recovering wounded game with dogs. The training is open to all hunting breeds.

Sunday February 22, 2009: covers the topic of hunting in fox and badger dens with earthdogs. Practice and test are open to earthdogs (Terriers and Dachshunds). A hunting license is required to enter dogs in the practice or test.
