Northern American Versatile Hunting Dog Association

Established in 1992, the Southern New England Chapter was formed to offer individuals and families living in Southern New England convenient access to NAVHDA training and testing opportunities.  Our member’s individual interests in the club vary from people looking to improve the hunting abilities of their dogs without testing, to those whose goal it is for their hunting partner to obtain the highly prized Versatile Champion title.
