D.T. Systems is proud to sponsor the Upland Gundog Association and their upcoming Hunt Test and Trial on May 18, 2013 in Grinnell, Iowa.
Founded in 2011, the Upland Gundog Association (UGA) was started to provide an upland-based venue for sporting dogs and bird hunters. Their purpose was to create a hunt test that was practical and appealing for the common bird hunter, their dog and their families, but demanded high quality dog performance in the field. The UGA’s mission is to provide a hunt test event that truly measures a dog’s ability to hunt based on realistic and practical upland bird hunting situations. The tests are offered for both pointing and flushing breeds, and are run in two different levels: Gundog level and Advanced Level. The UGA also offers a Youth Division and has recently added Shed Hunting Tests to their events. For more information about the UGA visit www.uplandgundog.com, visit their Facebook Page, or watch their video.
“A partnership with D.T. Systems could not be more fitting for the UGA,” said Upland Gundog Association President Ryan Eder. “Our venue was created to provide a platform in which hunters, their dogs and their families could enjoy our great sport, promote dog training and hopefully gain participation of the youth and newcomers to the sport. The UGA offers hunt tests that can be enjoyed by professional trainers, average everyday bird hunters and first-time dog handlers alike with one common goal; to educate people about the importance of quality dog training, grow the sport of hunt testing with sporting dogs and continue the great tradition of upland bird hunting. D.T. Systems is not only an industry leader in dog training electronics, but they share the same goals as the UGA. Like D.T. Systems, the UGA has something to offer everyone, from a professional dog trainer to first-time dog owner looking to get into hunt tests with their dog.”
“The partnership between UGA and D.T. Systems was a natural fit,” said D.T. System’s Director of Marketing Brian Lasley. “All of us here at D.T. Systems share in the same goals and objectives of promoting the sporting dog, friends and family in the field, and safe responsible dog training practices. The UGA embodies these principles and we are proud to support their organization.”
Registration for the Hunt Test and Trial on May 18, 2013 in Grinnell, Iowa will begin at 7:30 a.m. For more information on the event, please visit the UGA schedule.
