PAST EVENTS

 

Walking Field Trial

April 20, 2019 (one day only)

All handling on foot. Some stakes will be exclusive for Vizslas only. More general information about AKC Field Trials for pointing breeds are here

In addition to the AKC stakes, the VCNC is proud to offer two non-AKC sanctioned stakes: 

 

  1. Hunter’s Gun Dog: A Vizsla only stake. Dogs are not required to be steady to wing and shot but must show hunting desire, establish and hold point well, and reasonably retrieve to the handler. Ideal for dogs between the Junior and Senior Hunter levels.

  2. Senior Gun Dog (new): To enter, dogs must be: 10 years or older in age and have at least one broke dog Field Trial placement or at least one Master Hunter pass.

Rattlesnake Avoidance Training

May 5, 2019

If you like to take your dog running, hiking, camping or hunting, you and your pet are at risk of encountering rattlesnakes. While you might have the sense to avoid one, your dogs natural curiosity puts them at a much greater risk of a venomous bite.

 

Get Rattled – Rattlesnake Avoidance Training for Dogs uses live, healthy rattlesnakes that are placed in a variety of scenarios designed to focus the dog on specific aspects of rattlesnakes. This teaches your dog to recognize and avoid the sight, sound and smell of rattlesnakes.

Specialty and Sweepstakes

May 15-17, 2020

These Conformation events are held over the duration of 3 days. A club meeting and potluck lunch will also be held on one of the days.
