Also download guidelines for Judges & Handlers and Suggested Line Procedures. Read through these rules before the day of the test.  The judges will go over the basic rules with everyone quickly before the start of the stake and you can ask a few questions then if needed.  Call or email JoAnn or Dana with any questions before the event.

Well the 2015 ACC WD/WDX/WDQ test has come and gone. First of all, on behalf of JoAnn Stancer and myself, we would like to thank all of the owners,  handlers and spectators who came out to run and watch this WD/X/Q. We greatly appreciated it, and hope everyone had a good time. This was our first WD event and we were very happy to hear all the positive comments from everyone as they were hitting the road. We would also like to give all of our workers who came out to work this event for us a HUGE THANK YOU – and a big pat on the back for a job well done. Without these workers committing to work all day throwing birds and hauling equipment, we could not put on such an event. Again, THANK you… We could not have asked for better weather, clear skies, a little breeze, and high 70’s. For October in Wisconsin, the weather was absolutely gorgeous ! And how about those grounds people ! The Muth Farm is no stranger to holding dog events.  Many Hunt Tests were run on these grounds in past years, as well as the Master National when it was run in Wisconsin.  Ms. Elly Muth, (one of our WD Judges)  said we are welcome to come back any time.  And of course a BIG Thank you to our Judges. WD Land / WDX Judges: Ms. Elly Muth and Victoria Lunebach and WD Water / WDQ Judges Darrel and Rita Voight, who put on some very fair tests. If anyone ever travels back to Wisconsin to run AKC Hunt Tests next summer, you will most likely run into these familiar judges during our WI AKC Hunt Test season. We had 51 dogs run our WD/WDX/WDQ tests and they all did very well. Our judges Ms. Elly Muth and Victoria Lunebach also commented on how supportive everyone was of one another and they were impressed with the dog work they judged. Here is what Victoria Lunebach had to say:  “My co-judge Mrs. Eleanore (Elly) Muth and I saw beautiful dogs working with handlers socializing and supporting one another as well as the breed. We judged dogs from far away states as well as Germany and Hawaii. These breeders are very committed to their breed. I had such a good time and I thank them for having me. Well done to all the teams"!!!  So even our Judges commented on what a nice bunch of dogs and owners we had out there . . It was all about having a great time with our dogs and socializing and I believe we succeeded in both areas.  JoAnn and I thank you for coming to Wisconsin and the 2015 NSS WD Test!               Dana Sunderlage and JoAnn Stancer
