In Master tests, in at least two multiple marking situations the dog’s marking/memory will be tested with at least (3) falls before the dog is sent to retrieve. The (3) falls must be presented before a dog is sent to retrieve any mark or blind. During a double set of marks (2 falls) Master judges shall include additional elements of testing, i.e. walkup, diversion bird, diversion shot, blind/s etc. in testing the dog’s abilities.
