Pete Running in the Final Series of the Master at Dallas-Ft.Worth Labrador Retriever Club this last spring in Ravenna Texas.

The Zion Kennels crew had attended 2 hunt tests in the month of October. We took 4 Junior Dogs, Zack, Conner, Nexxus and Cody, 2 Senior Dogs, Ruger & Mick, and one Master Dog, Pete.

The Crew went 1 for 1 in the Master (only running one test), 4 Senior passes, and 8 Junior Passes. These passes we completed in just 2 Hunt Tests.

Pete turned in excellent work in the Master, with Pete nearly lining all his blinds including an in route poison bird blind. His marks were some of the best turned in with him having only one hunt the hole weekend.

In the Senior, Ruger passed all 3 tests easily. He pinned all the marks and 2-whistled several blinds. He needs one more pass for his SH and will move into the Master this Spring.

The Junior went will with Zack and Conner passing every test. They were heads and shoulders above most of the other competitors. The Juniors were some of the toughest test I have seen, with cover over the dogs head and goose silhouettes in line to marks posed an obstacle most other dogs could not handle.
