Chapter Mission


We are committed to developing dogs of all Versatile breeds to their best testing and hunting potential. The Southern California Chapter of NAVHDA is a non-profit organization established as an authorized chapter of NAVHDA and is dedicated to the same goal. Our members interests vary, from people looking to improve the hunting abilities of their dogs without testing, to those whose goal is for their hunting partner to obtain the elusive and highly prized Versatile Champion. 

We are a group of people who, working together, strive to achieve the best for you and your dog, no matter what level of experience or breed. Our common goal is for every member to broaden their experience and hunting pleasure through greater canine performance and increased camaraderie between man and dog. 

Over the years, we have worked hard to increase the level and quality of activities within our chapter. Both novice and experienced handlers alike have benefited from our well-rounded chapter activities, training days, and events. These include testing opportunities, training seminars, and instruction on the effective use of electronic training aids, and veterinary health advice.
