2020 Schedule of Events


The Southern Tier of New York Chapter holds formal Training Days at least once a month from March through September. These events occur on Sundays starting at 9:00 at the Field Site and running until finished at the Water Site. However, note that July, August and September training days will start earlier 8:00 am. Training Day locations vary throughout the year but the usual site is below. Just be sure to check the Upcoming events sections to confirm the exact date and location. Chapter members generally own one of the versatile breeds, but all breeds are welcome. The chapter often makes quail, pigeons or ducks available for use in training, and our members have a large variety of equipment they're willing to share. A typical training day will find members working on training objectives of pointing and steadiness, while others will engage in water work. Come join us at a training day to see what NAVHDA is all about. Spend some time with people who have experience with versatile hunting dog training and with NAVHDA testing and philosophy.

Evan Hendricks

A message from our Chapter President: It is with great sadness that I regret to inform you that Evan Hendricks passed away on Tuesday, August 6th. Evan was a true friend who constantly showed his enthusiasm for his dogs and support for all his fellow NAVHDA Chapter members in their training and testing efforts. I share with all of you our fond memories of our friend and our sympathies and best wishes for his wife Linda. As you know, earlier this year, Evan and Linda demonstrated their complete dedication and extraordinary generosity to advancing our NAVHDA Chapter’s mission by donating his custom outfitted trailer complete with virtually every sort of dog training and testing equipment imaginable. The generous spirit of Evan and Linda will never be forgotten by our Chapter and will live on every time we train and test. Please note in the picture of Evan featured that he is proudly wearing his Southern Tier Chapter jacket. For those of you wishing to pay your respects, please find calling hours and funeral services information through the web address below:
