A Levi Update! (2009)

Kathryn and Levi have earned four of the necessary five qualifying legs towards his Master Hunter Title. This is not an easy feat. A dog that has been recorded by AKC as a Senior Hunter will be recorded as a Master Hunter after having acquired Qualifying scores in the Master Hunting Test at five AKC-licensed or member club Hunting Tests.

On the weekend of August 22nd and 23rd, 2009, Levi and Kathryn earned their fifth qualifying leg and have achieved the honor of having the Master Hunter Title (MH)! This was at the Island View Retriever Club's fall hunt test. We all send huge congratulations to Kathryn and Levi onthis wonderful and amazing accomplishment!

Levi has proven himself to be exactly "what a Golden Retriever should be"!!
