Have just got back from 4 days in England seeing my new grandson a doing a bit of fallow stalking. After talking to a couple of stalkers while i was in the UK it got me thinking that if you have this test and i have a rough idea what is being proposed. Who will judge these tests ? Are there any qualified tracking judges in the UK? If the test is to be based on the Scandinavian model has any one been in touch with the hunting organisations in Scandinavia to try and come over and see what judging entails.
If this qualification is to mean anything then it should be judged by people who are as qualified as judges in any other field trial .
I would not be happy to have my tracking dog judged by some self appointed person without them having been trained as a judge for the job.
