The North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAHVDA) is a nonprofit corporation whose purpose is to foster, promote, and improve the versatile hunting dog breeds in North America; to conserve game by using well trained reliable hunting dogs before and after the shot; and to aid in the prevention of cruelty to animals by discouraging nonselective and uncontrolled breeding, which produces unwanted and uncared for dogs.

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 provided below. 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.
