Here are a few details that might help to answer your questions about the NEW AKC Master National Hunter title.
The AKC only places a title in front of the dog’s name when the competition is against other dogs. For example, a FC – Field Champion –competes with other dogs, as does the CH –Conformation Champion. Therefore those titles are placed before the dog’s name. For example, CH Braemar Morgaine O’Caerleon.
Dogs who compete against a Standard, for example our Hunt Test retrievers and Obedience dogs – have their AKC titles placed after the dog’s name.
Also, after a retriever achieves his Hall Of Fame status, or AKC MNH title, any qualification after that can be listed as a number. For example, Borderline’s Dead Ringer MNH7
