Helping both owner and pointing dog reach their full potential as a hunting team!

Our membership consists of pointing dog enthusiasts in Phoenix, Arizona and the surrounding areas.

NAVHDA is a nonprofit organization 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
  • to aid in the prevention of cruelty to animals by discouraging nonselective and uncontrolled breeding,      which produces unwanted and uncared for dogs

This chapter was formed to assist in the training of both the handler and their dog so that they together may reach their full potential as a hunting team.  Our chapter has many experienced NAVHDA members to help you in learning the proper training techniques, and how to teach them.  Plus, we also bring in expert trainers from outside our region to hold specialized training to help you and your dog meet all your training goals. 

We cooperate with fellow outdoor community organizations as both a conservation partner, and by participating  with local youth hunting programs.
