Welcome to the Potomac Chapter of the North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association.

The North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association or NAVHDA is a nonprofit, educational organization dedicated to fostering, improving, promoting and protecting the versatile hunting dog in North America and to the conservation of all game.

On this site you will find information about where we train and test, how to join our chapter, upcoming chapter events, our sponsors, chapter contacts and why we train versatile hunting dogs.



We are the oldest regional NAVHDA chapter, established May 10, 1972. Our committed members have been training dogs and instructing new members on how to train their own dogs for years.

The chapter conducts formal training sessions on the first Saturday of every month from March to September.

The Potomac Chapter of NAVHDA includes members from Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey.

The Chapter meets for regularly scheduled training sessions/clinics at McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management Area (WMA), Seneca, MD which is located on River Road in western Montgomery County. McKee-Beshers WMA has gun dog training areas that are available for year round training. Directions and maps are on this site.

In addition, the Chapter occasionally hosts professional training seminars, Handler Clinics and social events throughout the year. The Potomac Chapter conducts two NAVHDA sanctioned tests, one in the spring and one in the fall, and the Chapter also holds meetings in February and June to discuss business and planning for upcoming events. A schedule of the events is available on this site.
