Margaret Rathje, Pulaski, NY (Hunt Test - Master)
I started training my first puppy in 1984 and through my own breeding have recently retired my 7th generation of Master Hunters, all trained by me. Being active in the NAHRA program they have acquired Grand Master Hunting titles along with field trial Derby points, Open points and Qualified All Age.
To my benefit there are numerous clubs in Central New York to which I am a member and have held official positions over the years.
My judging started with NAHRA in the 90's and with AKC in 2001. Since then I have had the pleasure of judging nearly 40 NAHRA events and nearly 50 AKC hunt tests, mostly at Master level.
I owe thanks to all the clubs that have provided me with great Hunt Test experiences from both the line and the judges chair. Looking forward to another one!
