Field Trial
Competition for hunting breeds... dogs in the Sporting Group and Hounds. Dogs are judged on their abilities in the field, based upon the hunting characteristics of the breeds involved. Depending on the breed, they are judged on skills such as finding small game by scent or by sight, flushing, pointing, retrieving, etc.

Fleas

Flea Dip
A solution made to kill fleas, applied to an animal and not rinsed off, so it will have a residual action
