Test applications and payments must be received in order to reserve a test slot.  In the case of a full test day, potential testers may be put on a waiting list. 

Entries will not be considered accepted until a completed NAVHDA Test Entry Form and Test Fee are received by the Test Secretary.  A completed NAVHDA Test Entry Form must include the dog's NAVHDA registration number and all other required information that must be obtained by the Owner or Handler. 

The preferred running date you select will be considered, but not guaranteed.  All entrants need to be flexible so the chapter can fill slots in a way that allows testing the maximum number of dogs.

Participants must be at the testing grounds by 6:15 AM each day.  Lunch has been provided in the past, however due to COVID-19 we may not be able to provide lunch. More information will be provided as we approach the testing dates.

Refund Policy:  Your test entry fee will be refunded only if you withdraw from the test at least 2 weeks prior to the testing date AND there is a dog on the waiting list that can take your slot. If a refund is due to you for what ever reason, the refund will be mailed within one week of the last day of the test. If you withdraw within 2 weeks of the test, there will be no refund.  If you dog cannot run due to an injury, your entry fee will be refunded with a note from your veterinarian.
