We encourage every versatile gun dog to be NAVHDA tested, as the test tells you where your dog’s abilities are at and serves as the foundation for improving our versatile breeds. The tests are qualitative evaluations to proven performance standards in simulated hunting conditions. We welcome any/all NAVHDA members to join us in the tests that we host. We are sure you will have a pleasant experience.
Natural Ability (NA) testing evaluates the dog’s natural abilities before 16 months of age. Which gives you a vision of what your versatile gun dog can be tomorrow.
Prepatory (UPT) testing provides an intermediate test which evaluates the dog’s progression towards a finished utility gun dog.
Utility (UT) testing evaluates a dog’s finished hunting skills and abilities. At the time of the test, it tells you how good your dog is at hunting, pointing and retrieving game.
Invitational testing, the flag ship of NAVHDA, calls for a supreme versatile performance to become recognized as a Versatile Champion.
Natural Ability – $100 USD Members – $125 Non-KM members
Utility Prep – $125 USD Members – $150 Non-KM members
Utility – $125 USD Members – $150 Non-KM members
