Hastings, MI HZP Test Results (September 9 & 10, 2023)

Our Fall testing season is off to a great start. The Great Lakes Chapter held the first of our two HZP (Fall Breed Tests) in Hasting, MI September 9 & 10, 2023. 

Participants had good weather all weekend and all dogs and handlers were well prepared. The test was full with 10 dogs which resulted in some very nice dog work and scores (including a 12 awarded in water).

Thank you to Test Director Dan Carlisle, Test Coordinator James Smith and land owner Kim Beach (and neighboring land owners) for setting up, running and hosting a terrific test. Also, a special thanks to out-of-Chapter judge Richard German for making traveling from eastern PA to help us out.
