About Us

We are the oldest regional NAVHDA chapter, established May 10, 1972. Our committed members have been training their own dogs and helping new members learn to train dogs for years. 

Chapter members come from all walks of life and have varying levels of experience, from first time owners to seasoned handlers.  We are very lucky to have several NAVHDA judges and apprentice judges as members, who have a wealth of experience.
