Working to Foster, Promote, and Improve the Versatile Hunting Dog Breeds in North America
Welcome to the Florida Palmetto Chapter of NAVHDA
The Florida Palmetto Chapter of NAVHDA is a nonprofit 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 nonselective and uncontrolled breeding, which produces unwanted and uncared for dogs. The Florida Palmetto Chapter conducts educational activities, training sessions, and sponsors NAVHDA sanctioned tests throughout the year. Our goal is to help our members fully realize the potential of their versatile hunting dogs as companions and hunting partners. We are proud of our continued contribution to improvement of the versatile hunting dog through our breeding, training and testing programs. We are a very family oriented Chapter and thus strongly encourage all family members to participate at our events. As an existing or new member we want to keep you well informed about our events.

Just wanted to let you know that Buddy earned a Prize 1 today with a score of 112. I'm sure we wouldn't have made that score without your help. Even though the time we spent training in Florida was limited it definitely gave us a solid foundation. We hope to see you next winter!
Thanks for the welcome to the NAVHDA training group. The entire day gave me many opportunities to learn as I watched others and listened to you as you worked with the various dogs/handlers. You gave so many tips (I call them gems of knowledge) that I feel I really learned a lot from watching. Out time in the field was directed more to puppy foundation which was fantastic but the observing dogs during the entire day at all stages of training showed me why the foundation is so important for the finished product.
