Event Details

To attend this Event, you MUST have handled a dog in a NAVHDA UPT or UT test.  Scroll down for Registration Form and Payment

Clinic Leaders will be NAVHDA Senior Judges and Invitational Judges Tim Otto and Tim Clark.

This is a TWO-DAY Event

Attendees will learn about the NAVHDA Invitational Test Segments and Scoring system, and will observe dogs being run in the different segments and engage in discussions about potential scoring.  Training concepts will also be discussed.

You are welcome to bring your dogs.  There may be opportunities to work with your dog if you wish to, and it is determined that your dog’s level of training will be beneficial to the clinic.  This is optional, of course.  We will have demonstration dogs as well.

If you bring your dog, please be prepared to keep it kenneled in your vehicle or staked out at your vehicle away from the clinic area.  Pay attention to the weather.

A non-vegetarian lunch and bottled water will be provided each day.
