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 aid in the prevention of cruelty to animals by discouraging non-selective and uncontrolled breeding, which produces unwanted and uncared-for dogs.
The Florida Palmetto Chapter of NAVHDA, Inc. is a non-profit corporation established as an authorized chapter of NAVHDA and is dedicated to the same goal. We hold several training days throughout the year and host at least one “NAVHDA sanctioned test” each year. Please view our Calendar for details on upcoming training days and tests.
Membership to NAVHDA is recommended but not required to participate in a NAVHDA sanctioned test. However, your dog must be registered with NAVHDA to participate in a test. Please visit the NAVHDA website for membership information, fees, etc.
Membership to the FPC NAVHDA, Inc. chapter affords you the opportunity to use of our training grounds in Lake Wales, FL (or other locations as determined and communicated) on our scheduled training days.
Contact any of our Board Members for more information.
