Today was the day we were supposed to run Cleo in her NAVHDA UT test. For various reasons we decided to pull her. To read more on that check out last weeks post. But two fellow birddoggers we know ran there pups today at the Rock Tavern, NY NAVHDA chapter with fantastic results.
Rick Affuso who owns Oak the 14 month old Brittany pictured at the top of the blog knocked her first NAVHDA test out of the park with a prize 1, 112 points. Oak pointed and held on 4 birds today, had no trouble with the track and swam like a fish! Congrats Rick and Oak! Job well done.
Frank Capogna who owns AJ the 9 month old handsome black and white DK pictured above also had a phenomenal day and proudly brought home a prize 1, 112 points. Way to go Frank and AJ!

Anyone who has participated in a NAVHDA NA test knows that it takes dedication and training. Nothing feels better than watching your dog accomplish all the things you worked so hard for. There is no doubt that Rick and Frank will have a great hunting season this year.
Also, tomorrow is a big day for several of our training buddies. Several of Cleo's siblings from a later litter will be running in their Natural Ability Test tomorrow. Best of luck guys! You will all do great!
