Apprentice Judge Program

Interested in expanding your role with NAVHDA?

Take the next step and become an Apprentice Judge.

The development of NAVHDA judges is serious business. Completing the Apprentice Judge Program is a rewarding and educational experience, and is also demanding of one’s attention and time. But judge development doesn’t end when someone earns their judge approval; it continues with Judges Workshops and continued requirements to handle dogs in NAVHDA tests. 

Looking to take the next step? Run and pass a Utility dog, complete an Aims & Rules Clinic, and check out the links below for more information and application materials.
