Michael Banyard earns Junior Hunter Qualification

Taconic Hills 8th grader Michael Banyard and his dog Lena recently participated in an AKC event and passed all four legs over multiple days, qualifying as a Junior Hunter. 

In March, they will travel to Virginia to run in the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association to earn a natural ability title. 

Michael (and Lena) have worked very hard with a lot of training going into these events. They plan to continue their journey to higher levels of training and testing.
