The purpose of the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA) 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.
Ontario Grand River (OGR) is a sanctioned, non-profit chapter serving Southwestern Ontario;
from Lake Huron to Lake Ontario, from Georgian Bay to Lake Erie.
