An Introduction to NAVHDA

The North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association
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.

Our Purpose

The North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association is a legally recognized nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering, improving, promoting, and protecting the versatile hunting dog in North America.

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.
