Pleasantville, OH VJP Test Results (March 11 & 12, 2023)
The Great Lakes Chapter held it's first VJP (puppy test) at Chief Tarhe Beagle Club and Local Farms outside of Pleasantville, OH.
Huge thanks to Joe Beiter who was Test Director and Test Coordinator.
Judges were Joe Beiter from OH, Barry Pickens from OH, Jim Abraham from NY and soon to be apprentice judge, Stephen Rogers from OH. Our original out-of-chapter judge had to cancel due to an injury. Jim was able to commit to helping at the last minute. In less than 24 hrs, Jim rented a car and drove 7 hrs to help us out.
It was great to see several GLC members show up to help set birds for pointing work and of course help beat for rabbits. The cover in the beagle pen was tall enough to hide the rabbits yet low enough to walk through easily. The mowed paths criss-crossed the 16 acre rabbit enclosure which permitted judges as well as the gallery to watch the dogs work the track, even the tracks that exceeded 50 yards at times.
