Coming to a test is a great way to see our dogs, learn about our breeding and testing program, and determine if you would like to get a dog and become part of the action. Visitors are welcome to attend.  If you are already a member, please consider attending and volunteering too! Heartland Chapter Field Tests are held at the Mazomanie Field Test Grounds near Salk City, WI.  The Heartland Chapter normally conducts a Spring test in late April and a Fall Test in early September.
