Hunting Tests
The Natural Ability Test which is designed to evaluate the inherent natural abilities of young dogs and gain insight into their possible usefulness as versatile gun dogs. It rates seven important inherited abilities: nose, search, tracking, pointing, water, desire and cooperation.
Baron Maquis de L'Escarbot son of T'Ursene de St. Lubin (France) and Toy de St. Lubin (France)

He got a Pass at the Nationals in Montana and a Reserve at Florida and Georgia events. Think now I can add "GUN" to his title but haven't got anything for the UKC on that yet. He got a First Place in the Altered Class Males (the blue ribbon) in Montana but I don't they did the altered class right so don't know where this stands - no one has contacted us one way or the other.

Ubu de L'Escarbot ("Boo") - FIRST EVER FRENCH BRITTANY SPANIEL NAVHDA VERSATILE CHAMPION

Not only did Boo get her Versatile Champion title, she was one of only a few dogs who got a perfect score!

The highlight was the last event. She was required to watch a live shackled duck flung into the air while I blanked it. After the duck hit the water 70 yards away, I sent her for the retrieve. The duck took off and Boo went the completely wrong way. She covered over 600 yards of lily pad infested water, almost caught two wild ducks, and took 19 of the possible 20 minutes before she emerged in front of the gallery with a duck in mouth. The duck had hit land and crawled 40 yards up a hill towards the gallery. People were standing and cheering for 30 lb. wonder dog.
