Our club encourages members to share training and testing experience with other owners of versatile hunting dogs, give advice on training techniques, and offer assistance with becoming a better handler and trainer. Whatever problem you may be experiencing someone has had the same issue.
Our members own a wide variety of versatile hunting dog breeds. Members can offer personal experiences from their own testing, training and hunting experiences. The opportunity exists to watch these dogs in the field to help decide whether a specific breed is right for you. That experience can be very helpful for the new owner or handler.
Our Chapter offers indoor and outdoor training sessions throughout the year, as well as new handler clinics, youth handler clinics, mock tests, and formal NAVHDA sanctioned tests to help benefit members who are training pups or working toward higher level testing such as a Utility or Invitational test.
Our club encourages the whole family to participate and learn. We especially enjoy participation of junior members in all aspects training and handling a versatile hunting dog. Family participation is a core belief in the chapter and we encourage all members of a family to learn to handle the family's dog(s).
