    CAROLINA PBGV CLUB HUNT


    Taking place in Cleveland, NC! The Tarheel Beagle Club features 2 pens, each over 30 acres, with a good rabbit population - sure to be a great event for all! The premium list is now available, and entries will be opening on Wednesday, February 1st, 2023. 

    Please note, North Carolina requires that all handlers have a valid hunting license from their home state. Judges are not required to have a license, but the overlap of handlers and hunt judges is almost 100% at many of our hunts. Check with your state's wildlife department to determine how to get a hunting license ahead of this event. Many states offer virtual programs for flexibility and ease of access.

    Texas PBGVCA Hunt



    Come join us in Texas for a great hunt weekend. We offer PLE/NLE on Friday along with open field time. We hunt in a fenced field with lots of rabbits and well kept grounds to make your hunt easier. The dogs and people always have a great time. This is a great place to allow your PBGV's to safely do what they were bred to do, HUNT! On top of all the fun in the field we have a fantastic raffle and home cooked lunch.

    Questions to: Lora Megli, lmegli@yahoo.com

    Fascinating fact: Dogs have a sense of smell that’s between 10,000 and 100,000 times more acute than ours! The sport of Scent Work celebrates the joy of sniffing, and asks a dog to sniff to their heart’s content; turning your dog’s favorite activity into a rewarding game. It is a terrific sport for all kinds of dogs, and is a wonderful way to build confidence in a shy dog.

    In so many dog sports the handler is in control but this isn’t true in Scent Work. Neither the dog nor handler knows where the target odor is hidden. The handler has to rely on the dog, and follow the dog’s nose to success. In Scent Work, it is the canine who is the star of the show.

    The sport of Scent Work is based on the work of professional detection dogs (such as drug dogs), employed by humans to detect a wide variety of scents and substances. In AKC Scent Work, dogs search for cotton swabs saturated with the essential oils of Birch, Anise, Clove, and Cypress. The cotton swabs are hidden out of sight in a pre-determined search area, and the dog has to find them. Teamwork is necessary: when the dog finds the scent, he has to communicate the find to the handler, who calls it out to the judge.
