2022 National Gun Dog Championship

The NGDC is a Vizsla-only walking trial with 1-hour braces. A “walking” trial differs from horseback trials in that the handler is on foot. The braces are run for an entire hour, and the dogs are required to retrieve. The NGDC event is held annually and includes an additional stake, Open Puppy, also on foot.
