Southern Tier of New York NAVHDA Chapter

We were certified as Southern Tier of New York Chapter of the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA) on January 18, 1985. NAVHDA 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 dogs before and after the shot; and to aid in the prevention of curelty to animals by discouraging nonselective and uncontrolled breeding which produces unwanted and uncared for dogs. Many members have contributed to the success of this chapter and we thank them for their efforts. At the Southern Tier Chapter we strive to help members become confident, capable trainers with the goal of developing excellent versatile hunting dogs. We also emphasize fun, camaraderie and value the lasting friendships made along the way.
