What's New in Ohio

Work days were held at Tri Valley WLA. . Boards on the Corrals were replaced.  We
also helped layout and mow trial grounds in Aug. Work days are planned for 2016 in
the spring to repair corrals and kennels and a workday with our Dog of the Year
Picnic in June. In August we will again this year assist with mowing the area and
preparing for the fall trial season.
Who Are We
The ABDCO is comprised of licensed AKC and American Field trial and Hunt Test  
giving Clubs. We work with the State to schedule Field Trials and Hunt Tests on
state wildlife areas and on private grounds.  We  promote hunting  with dogs and
wildlife conservation. We serve as a voice for the Ohio sportsman to ODWL
Ohio Dog of the Year  awards are given to outstanding dogs that compete in
American Field Pointing  Breed Trials, AKC Pointing Breed Trials, AKC
Retreiver Trials and Hunt Tests.
Membership
Membership is open to any dog club or organization that hold field trials, hunt tests
or other competitive hunting dog event in the state of Ohio. Priority Dates are drawn
twice a year to use the state wildlife areas. Members of the ABDCO draw the dates
at the state priority meeting  and resolve any conflicts as to who receives the dates
available. We also schedule dates on private grounds to help avoid conflicting
events within the group.
Field Trials go hand in hand with hunting. Proven breeding stock produce
outstanding hunting companions.  Trials give the hunter additional opportunities to
enjoy their sport and their dogs. A schedule of Field Trials and Hunt Test held in
Ohio is posted on this website calendar.
