NAVHDA encourages family participation in our organization. To that end, we are offering educational and testing opportunities for youth (under 19 year old).
Kristin Rieser Youth Handler Clinic Program
A Handlers Clinic is an educational tool developed by NAVHDA to help dog owners and handlers understand the testing system. During the two-day clinic weekend, participants experience all aspects of a Natural Ability, Utility Preparatory, and Utility test.
The Kristin Rieser Youth Handler Clinic Program is a great opportunity for NAVHDA youth members to expand their knowledge of dog training and learn about the NAVHDA testing system.
NAVHDA Youth Testing Incentive Program
The purpose of the NAVHDA Youth Testing Incentive Program is to encourage young NAVHDA members to participate in NAVHDA testing through partial reimbursement of their test entry fees.
