Once a year ‘The Boykin Spaniel Society’ hosts the National Field Trial. This event is open only to Boykin Spaniels and attracts Boykins from all over the country. There are four divisions, Puppy, Novice, Intermediate and Open. Steven Guzman and his Boykin Spaniel, Reece, competed in the Novice divisions which had 77 entries. After the first series, 45 dogs were cut from the contest and 22 dogs were carried to the final series. Reece and Guzman won the title “2020 Novice National Champion”.
“It was such an honor and next year we will be competing in the Intermediate division,” said Guzman.
