The North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association ( NAVHDA ) is a non-profit corporation whose purpose is to foster, promote and improve the versatile hunting dog breeds in North America. To do this they sanction four levels of testing, Natural Ability ( NA ), Utility Prep ( UPT ), Utility ( UT ) and the Invitational. We strongly believe that is the best testing system out there for testing dogs before and after the shot.

Please take a look at the NAVHDA web page to get a full understanding of the club and its testing program.
