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.

August Training Day

The August Training Day is Sunday August 18, 2019, 8:00 am at Long Pond. The fields at Long Pond are scheduled to be mowed before then so training conditions will be similar to the upcoming test conditions. Please remember to bring all needed equipment and plenty of water for you and your dogs. Any questions contact Joe M. (joem54@frontier.com or 607-842-6945).

Training Date Cancelled

THE TRAINING DAY SCHEDULED FOR SUNDAY, MARCH 18 HAS BEEN CANCELED.

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.
