Click for 2023 Draft Test Information
Based on their working heritage of pulling farm carts, this is a BMDCA titling event designed for dogs pulling carts and their handlers to work as teams to accomplish specific maneuvers. Dogs must be at least 2 years old to compete. Tests are pass/fail.
The Blue Ridge Bernese Mountain Dog Club hosts an annual Draft Test each spring. Teams spend many hours practicing to hone their skills at pulling carts and correctly maneuvering through a rigid course. Successful teams earn BMDCA Draft titles.
We are sometimes asked why we strive to have three judges at our daft tests. See this link for an explanation.
