Master National Results & Hall of Fame
Master Nationals is an annual invitational at the end of the hunt test season. A dog must qualify for the event by getting six master hunter passes through out the year. The Master Nationals is held in a different venue each year. It is a grueling eight day event that consists of six individual series. A qualified dog must pass each series, with high marks, in order to be called back to the following series.
When a dog passes all six series they receive a Master National Pass. A dog may compete year after year. After a dogs third pass, they are inducted into the Master National Hall of Fame. This is the highest award that a hunt test dog can receive. It changes their pedigree suffix to MNH.
