  2. 2. Introduction  After graduating with a BS and MS from Friends University in Wichita, Kansas, Jeffery Scott Fraser became the CEO of the software company NIC, Inc. Now the owner of Tsaina Lodge in Valdez, Alaska, Jeffery S. Fraser enjoys bird dog field trialing in his spare time. Field trialing is a way of testing and evaluating the ability of bird dogs to work effectively under competitive circumstances. A trial is designed to mimic the conditions in a day of field shooting. The dogs must show their competence with all types of game, from rabbits to fowl. Some of the most popular dog breeds were bred for their prowess in hunting. Cocker spaniels were bred to be expert at flushing out game and retrieving it after it is killed by the hunter. Labrador and golden retrievers were named for their ability to bring back a carcass, and pointers and setters were known for identifying potential hunting targets.
