The second level of aptitude testing is the Advanced Hunting Aptitude Evaluation and it is designed for the young dog beyond puppy stage that is fully developed mentally and physically.  The abilities of the dog at this level should have been further enhanced through training, therefore giving one a very reliable and detailed evaluation.  This level of detailed evaluation is very useful as the primary tool for the hunter and breeder to evaluate natural ability and trainability of individual dogs as well as entire litters.  During the AHAE, each dog is evaluated for the aptitudes of Nose, Search, Pointing, and Search behind a duck (which combines tracking and water) as well as having Desire and Cooperation evaluated during each of the specific test subjects.  Further, each dog is tested in the trained subjects of  Steadiness on Game, Retrieving on Land, Retrieving in Water, Blind Water Entry, and Retrieve by Drag, as well having Obedience evaluated during each of the specific trained test subjects.
