You aren't going to find a Boykin specific field trial, but you could participate in Spaniel Hunt Tests or in retriever tests. What type of hunting do you do/plan on doing with your dog? That would dictate which event you enter him in. The closest HTs for Spaniels that I know of are at the lbj grasslands and down by Austin.

Sure. I dont know a lot about the retriever tests, but I can tell you more about the spaniel tests if you'd like. They are basically a mix of upland type hunting and some retrieving.
