The Missouri Uplands Chapter generally holds one organized training day per month during the off season for the general membership. The only exceptions may be the months in which we hold our sanctioned tests. In addition to the organized events, many of our members meet on other occasions to train and test their versatile hunting companions.

We encourage all our members to not only come out and work their own dog(s) but to also take advantage of the opportunity to draw on the experience of others. Participants should plan to spend the better part of the day so that they may observe, assist, advise and ask questions of others. Bottom line ..... get involved!

In addition, guests are always welcome to any of our events. We're always excited to introduce people to NAVHDA and demonstrate the abilities of the versatile hunting breeds.

Training days typically start around 8:00am. Depending on the number of participants and everyone's focus we divide into small groups and start the activities. When possible we also try to stage a 10 - 15 minute training demonstration by one of our members on a specific topic of interest. Another aspect of our training days are the mock tests. Prior to our sanctioned tests we provide members with the opportunity to run though a simulated test. This helps "first timers" obtain an understanding of the various test procedures and expectations. For our more "seasoned" participants it provides an opportunity to put it all together one more prior to the test.

The majority of our training days are held at the Roth farm in Middletown, Missouri in Montgomery County. The Roth's have developed two fields which are ideal for field work, as well as, two water sites including a wetlands area. The facilities provide ample opportunity for all aspects of versatile dog training. The Chapter extends our sincere thanks to Hal and Nance Roth for the generous use of their farm.
