UBT 20-Hour Blood Tracking Test is being offered for the first time
Date: September 4, 2010, Location: Berne, NY

The test is limited to 6 dogs. Entries close August 14, 2010. If there are fewer than 4 entries on the closing date, the test will be cancelled.
The UBT-20 is one of the UBT’s advanced blood tracking tests. At the end of the test each handler/dog team will be given a thorough oral evaluation of performance along with a detailed score/rating (Prize I, II or III). Dogs passing the test will receive a certificate suitable for framing. Handlers will be able to ask questions and receive training advice at the end of the test.
Training is needed to pass a 20-hour blood tracking test. Dogs should be trained in advance under simulated test conditions (1,000 yards, 20 hrs, 8 oz. blood) and be adequately prepared. The test will take place regardless of weather conditions.
