The Central Maine Brittany Club holds an AKC licensed hunt test for pointing breeds every year on the third weekend in April. The hunt test is held at the Kennebunk Plains Wildlife Management Area in Maine. We have added an optional water test after the Masters.
This is an AKC walking field trial open to all AKC registered pointing breeds. Judges may be on horseback for some stakes. Dogs compete to earn points towards field champion titles. Additionally, CMBC participates in the “New England Amateur Walking Hunting Dog” program where annually an award is given to the Brittany earning the most points in the Amateur Walking Hunting Dog stake.
The spring field trial is held on Memorial day weekend in May and the fall field trial is typically held on the weekend after Labor Day weekend in September.
The Central Maine Brittany Specialty Show is part of the 4 day Maine Chickadee Classic. The Lewiston-Auburn Kennel Club hosts the show on Thursday and Friday. The Penobscot Valley Kennel Club hosts the show on Saturday and Sunday. The Brittany classes at the PVKC show on Saturday are considered the CMBC Specialty Show. The CMBC supports the Brittany entries at the Sunday show.
