Our next plan is to practice/go hunting.
To be eligible for the title of Estonian Champion, Fiona has to pass a hunting trial. At the moment I have no knowledge about hunting and I don’t know how we will do it. But it’s hunting season and we’ll see!
Also the title International Beauty Champion needs Fiona to pass this trial.
Here is a excerpt of the FCI regulations for the international championship.
FCI INTERNATIONAL BEAUTY CHAMPIONSHIP
Breeds subject to working trials
To be eligible for the title International Beauty Champion, these dogs must have obtained:
a) in two different countries, under two different judges, two certificats d’aptitude au Championnat International de Beauté (CACIB);
b) between the first and last CACIB, a minimum period of one year and one day must have elapsed. This period is to be understood as follows.
In addition to a) and b), the hunting dog must have passed a hunting test/trial specific to its breed in which the Certificat d’Aptitude au Championnat National de Travail (CACT) is competed for. The date of the test/trial is not taken into account.
