The Minnesota Chapter has arranged with NAVHDA International to hold this unique 2 Day Clinic and Informational Event at Kelley Land & Cattle Company in Hugo/Marine on St Croix, MN.

Clinic Leader will be NAVHDA Senior Judge Clyde Vetter

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 may or may not get to work with your own dog, depending on your dog’s level of training and clinic needs.   *UPDATE 6/1:  Due to weather forecast, it is recommended you NOT bring your dog**   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.
