Our Mission

The mission of the Rappahannock Chapter is to provide training and testing services using a proven, standard method of evaluating the performance of all versatile hunting dogs, consistent with North American hunting practices, regardless of breed. Our chapter conducts educational activities, training sessions, and sponsors NAVHDA sanctioned tests. Our goal is to help our members fully realize the potential of their versatile hunting dogs as companions and hunting partners. We emphasize hands-on training for the inexperienced to the seasoned handler. All of us learn from and help each other.

We encourage all family members to participate at our events.
