Test Application


You will need to include your NAVHDA International member number along with your dog''s registration number on the application. Your dog must be NAVHDA registered in order to enter a test. If your dog is not registered, then please do so by contacting the NAVHDA International office at 847-253-6488 or by e-mail at navhda@navhda.org.


Only completed applications can be processed to participate in the Southern Adirondack test. We cannot hold spots unless the complete application and the test fee are received.


Your entry fee will not be returned to you unless we can fill your place in the test prior to the test. If your dog cannot run due to an injury, your entry fee will be refunded, provided documentation from your vet is provided.


A participant can only test a maximum of two dogs in our test. In the event test is not full, then the chapter reserves the right to allow a handler to test more than two dogs.

Females In Season

Females in season may be tested, however they can be very distracting to the other dogs. Notify the test secretary as soon as possible so that adjustments can be made to the running order.
