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 non selective and uncontrolled breeding, which produces unwanted and uncared for dogs.
Our goal is to acquaint hunters, sporting dog enthusiasts, and any interested person with the proper humane training methods, outlined in the NAVHDA AIMS book. We are family oriented and always welcome guests, and new members.
