Coming to a test is a great way to see a Cesky Fousek in action, learn about our breeding and testing program, and determine if you would like to get a dog and become part of the action.

Northwest Chapter fall tests are normally held the last weekend of August at the Ladd Marsh Wildlife Area near La Grande, Oregon.
