Website Remodel Underway!

We will be working on updates and improvements. Stay tuned! Feel free to checkout out our Facebook site as construction is underway. I will be posting progress and communications for the Chapter along the way.

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.

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.

New NAVHDA corporate sponsor: Dakota 283

The Executive Council of NAVHDA is excited to announce the addition of a brand new corporate sponsor, Dakota 283. We are fortunate to have Dakota 283 on board supporting our organization with products that are designed specifically for the hunter and his/her dog. Their products include high-end, durable, one-piece crates and under-crate storage vaults.

Dakota 283 products are designed for the hunter enthusiast to easily transition your vehicle to "hunt mode" in just minutes.  The integrated Badlands Gun Vault and Dog Kennel system is ideal for bird hunters looking for an elegant solution to securely store shotguns and shells, and easily fit a couple of dog kennels in bed of truck or slide in the back of your SUV.  The gun vault's modular, weather and water resistant compartments store multiple guns during bird season and easily converts to rifles with scopes for big game hunts.

Key to the Dakota line of vaults and kennels is their rotationally molded construction. Only Dakota combines ultra lightweight, attractive, ergonomic design in products that are virtually indestructible... all at a price every outdoorsman can afford.
