Kentuckiana NAVHDA


Formed in February 2011, the Kentuckiana NAVHDA Chapter serves as a sanctioned grass roots organization which sponsors training and testing programs to meet the needs of the versatile hunting dog owners of Southern Indiana and Kentucky by promoting the philosophy of the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA)

The North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA) is a non-profit corporation whose purpose is to foster, promote and improve the versatile hunting dog breeds in North America, to conserve game by using well trained reliable hunting dogs before and after the shot and to aide in the prevention of cruelty to animals by discouraging non-selective and uncontrolled breeding, which produces unwanted and uncared for dogs.

Underlying these aims is the desire to serve the interests of game conservation, prevention of cruelty to animals and the gun dog hunter by helping the hunter to train his dog to work before and after the shot on land and in water. NAVHDA is an excellent complement to the activities of sporting dog breed clubs and field trial organizations. It was created to supplement the activities of those clubs by providing a proven standard method of evaluating the performance of all versatile hunting dogs consistent with North American hunting practices, regardless of breed.

Frank is planning on doing several to steady your dog, force fetching and some water work.

Chukars will be available for $12 per bird, so let us know how many to purchase by noon June 7 (Thursday). We need to get the birds ordered and picked up.

Also, t-shirts are still available and are $15 each.

Look forward to seeing you all there...
