as well as at tests held by various Poodle clubs throughout the country. PCA has also recently instituted an Upland Certificate program that rewards those Poodles who compete in and pass Upland tests (simi- lar to AKC’s Spaniel Hunting Tests). And a new Herding Certificate program is get- ting underway for those who are training and testing their Poodles on various types of stock. So next time you watch Poodles in the show ring, you don’t have to use your imag- ination to see them herding sheep, flushing pheasants or retrieving ducks. All it takes is a haircut and some training and you’d be watching an intelligent and capable work- er in a variety of settings. Come on—you know you can see it now!!
