Training Date Cancelled


There is more than a foot of snow covering the fields at Long Pond State Forest. In addition, the condition of the access road precludes us from conducting training.

March 2017 Newsletter

Highlights from the issue:

  • March 26 training day summary and the tough weather
  • Looking ahead to our April 23rd training day

Training day scheduled for 3-26-2017

The Southern Tier of NAVHDA March training day scheduled for 3-26-2017 is still in effect. Please note that the extended forecast strongly suggest that the recent snow accumulation should be mostly gone by the training day but there is no guarantee. Please plan appropriately for not ideal conditions. We expect that the introduction portion such as Welcome to NAVHDA, table work, and healing will have no issues. Though the field may still have snow accumulation, field work should still be an option for anyone wishing to do so. Please keep in mind the cover will be mostly laid down due to the recent snow fall and water pools will most likely be present . We are sure we will be able to provide Puppy introduction to Pigeons (Pointing) onsite also. Water for puppy training will most likely not be available. For new members please keep in mind that the first training day is a great way to socialize your dog or puppy and to get a full presentation as to what NAVHDA is all about and what to expect from NAVHDA. We hope to see everyone at the Training Day.
