FRYEBURG — The Central Maine Brittany Club held a Pointing Dog Training Day on Saturday, Sept. 10, at Brownfield Game Management Area near Fryeburg, also known as Maine Bird Dog Club Trial Grounds. The morning was dedicated to various trainers explaining their techniques for training gun dogs, and the afternoon was spent in the woods with the dogs as they tried to find and point live quail that were “planted” for the dogs to find. The event attracted about 35 people from around New England, including a couple of families with children. The techniques learned Saturday are used during field trials and hunt tests, which simulate the experience of hunting game birds with pointing dogs. Central Maine Brittany Club has members from all over New England. Visit its website to find information on future activities sponsored by the club.
