Our Members:

Our chapter is volunteer run, and for that reason, our members are the heart of our chapter.  Without our members,  the activities and opportunities we have for improving our personal training skills and the skills of our  bird dogs wouldn't be possible.  Our chapter welcomes members of all ages and experience levels. 


Our Dogs:

Don't be surprised if when you join our chapter that people first start to recognize you by your dog!  The dogs really are what this chapter is about.  We have a large variety of versatile breeds represented from Brittanies to Vizslas, and many in between.  We even have members that train hunting breeds not found on the NAVHDA  registry list of breeds.  

The North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association defines versatility as "the dog that is bred and trained to dependably hunt and point game, to retrieve on both land and water, and to track wounded game on both land and water."     ~ NAVHDA Aims, Programs, Test Rules
