Hi, I would like to enter my basset puppy in a field trial but I don't really know anything about them. Any suggestions would be great. I have a few questions.

1. She is 5 months old, is that to young?
2. Do they have a beginners group to run with?
3. Any other suggestions would be great. Thanks

Ken Billings

Hello Trkr75
I will try to answer your questions
5 months is fine for starting training. The main thing to keep in mind that with any training, a basset will learn when it is ready. alot of hunting bassets start when they are 1- 2 years old but like anything the earlier you start and the harder you work at it the sooner you see results
The hunts are set up as Open, Champion and Grand Champion classes.
The open class is the"beginners" class. The open class is made up of young dogs.
The best suggestion i can give you is to attend an event, and visit with everyone.
You may also want to check out the American Hunting Basset association website. http://www.bassetnet.com It will contain alot of info that you may find useful.
Feel free to drop me a line if i can be of any assistance, and best of luck
