Herding Capability Test

Jane Nahra

O.G. North Texas Schutzhund Club is sponsoring its 11th Annual Herding Capability Test with instructional clinics October 17-19 at Lake Simonds Park, Seagoville Texas (about 20 miles east of Dallas). The tests are sanctioned by the American Herding Breeds Association (AHBA) and are open to several breeds in addition to those in the AKC herding group (Rotweillers for example). Dogs must be registered with the AKC (including ILP), UKC, foreign or other recognized registry and be at least 6 months old.

The herding capability tests (HCT) are used to evaluate the herding potential in a dog. To obtain an HCT title the dog must pass 2 legs, testing under 2 different judges at two different times (this can be done in the same day or same weekend). The first leg is the basic instinct test and requires no obedience. The second leg is similar in format but requires more active handling of the dog by its handler and the dog should know basic obedience sit, come, stay and down. Clinics are also available where you can recieve one on one instruction. We also offer the more advanced Junior Herding Dog test.

If you would like a flyer and entry form, or have questions, please e-mail me at Pre-entries close October 13 (you can register on site, but it's more expensive).
