“A Different Approach”

Part of the mission of the North American Pudelpointer Society is to present our membership with opportunities to gather together to train, test, fellowship and enjoy our common interest of owning and handling these fine versatile dogs.  The weekend of February 11-12, 2023 we have reserved the grounds of Timber Creek in Andersonville, GA for a training session and fun run  Please check out the website for information about the grounds.  This is one of the sites utilized by the Mid-South NAVHDA Chapter.  Mid-South ran its first NAVDHA test on the grounds at this location this past October and the reviews of the participants experiences were all positive.  There is lodging available at the site as well as hotels in nearby Americus, GA.

This training session will be led by two gentlemen well known throughout the Pudelpointer and NAVHDA community, Bill Snyder and Stephen Follin.  The weekend will consist of the following format:
