Saturday, September 25, 2021 and Sunday September 26, 2021

ALL DAY: NAVHDA Tests hosted by the Appalachian Valley NAVHDA Chapter, Tupper Plains, OH.   Thanks to the Appalachian Valley Chapter for hosting us as part of their Fall test which will offer Natural Ability, Utility Prep, and Utility Testing.  Please note that NAVHDA test entries are extremely limited due to the amount of time required for the judges to evaluate each dog in various venues.  Ten is the absolute maximum number (assuming all are puppies).  As soon as the test is posted up on the NAVHDA International website it is open to anyone who applies, and tests generally fill several months in advance so if you plan to enter get your paperwork in as early as possible.  Your dog must be registered with NAVHDA to participate.  A test flyer with details will be sent to entrants by Test Secretary, Caleb Jones, Phone 309-488-9802. (Scroll down for links to NAVHDA forms and other information.)

Directions to Tuppers Plains Hunt Test Grounds

Tuppers Plains is at the intersection of OH-681 and OH-7. Go south out of Tuppers Plains on OH-7 a half mile and turn right on the second lane, called Hickory Hill Road (there is a small church on the corner). Go straight up the hill past the first house and there is a slight turn to the left before the second house. (Ignore the sign about a guard dog on duty!) Follow the two-track dirt road on your right (it looks like you are driving into a field). We’ll have a sign at this point to direct you.

If you are using GPS, you can use this address to get you as far as the church on the corner of Hickory Hill Road:

                      Hickory Hills Church of Christ

                         Reedsville, OH 45772
