ISCM Hunt Test

Barn Course, Highland Field Trial Grounds

(to be held in conjunction with the Nodrog Hunt Test on the Silo Course)

A big thank you to everyone that came out to our hunt test!  We had a great idea of running it

in conjunction with the Nodrog Hunt Test on the Silo Course to allow handlers an opportunity

to potentially get two legs on a dog in one day.  We ran our hunt test in reverse order to allow time for handlers to get to both courses.  We heard much enthusiasm for this idea/opportunity, unfortunately Mother Nature did not cooperate and the Nodrog Hunt Test had to be canceled

at the last minute due to unsafe conditions.

We hope to try running our hunt test again in conjunction with the Nodrog Test next year!

Without a doubt the best dogs are those available directly from quality breeders, which carry an AKC registration.  Please – do not buy a puppy from someone’s backyard, a parking lot, or a pet store.  Even though they may be ‘Registered’, there’s a 99% probability that they will have a major health issue, which may result in discomfort for the dog, expensive veterinary bills, and disappointment for you and your family.  You will not pay more in the long run for a puppy from a quality breeder.

The breeders who you will be referred to by the ISCM Breeders Referral Committee are all known to us, and have track records of producing quality animals.
