Benefits for Chapter members are:

  • reduced rates for tests and clinics,

  • member training days,

Regardless of your experience, our members are happy to assist you.

The Chapter organizes training opportunities and social events for Chapter members throughout the year.


The Chapter holds a spring Natural Ability test in May/June and fall Natural Ability and Utility test in September. 

We encourage members train with others. For new members, just getting started within NAVHDA or with a new versatile puppy, we encourage you to contact one of our experienced members designated as Training Mentors in the area nearest to you to assist you with questions and training.
