Please use only the most current entry form available on the NAVHDA International website. Forms and fees (payable to Rappahannock NAVHDA) should be mailed to test secretary Alyssa Pease at 1229 Shenandoah Rd., Alexandria VA 22308. Dogs must be registered with NAVHDA International and owners/handlers must be current NAVHDA members to be eligible to enter. Contact the test secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about test openings.
Tests are filled on a first come, first served basis. Your entry is not complete until your entry form and fees are received and acknowledged by the test secretary. You will receive an email confirmation of your entry. NOTE: Due to current delays with USPS it is strongly advised that you let the test secretary know when you have mailed something as paperwork has been taking two weeks or more to arrive. Checks for confirmed entries are deposited on receipt.
If there are no openings available you will be notified upon receipt of your entry and offered a place on the waiting list. The waiting list will be maintained on a first come, first served basis. Checks received for entries placed on the waiting list will be held until such time as there is room in the test and the handler accepts a test slot, at which time the check will be deposited. Checks from entrants who elect to withdraw from the waiting list or for whom there is not room by the time of the test will be destroyed. Anyone on the waiting list who discovers that they no longer need or want to be on the list should contact the test secretary as soon as possible so that the next person in line can be moved up.
If you need to cancel your entry please contact the test secretary as soon as possible so your slot can be offered to another handler in a timely manner. If you have not received confirmation within two weeks of submitting your withdrawal notice, please follow up with the test secretary to ensure that your request was received.
A $25.00 administrative fee will be deducted from any refund issued. Refunds will be sent after the test date if there is a replacement entry available to fill the slot of the withdrawn dog and the test is full on the date in question. If both conditions are not satisfied no refund can be issued. If a withdrawal is made as the result of a medical condition of either the dog or handler, a written request should be sent to the test secretary to be considered for a full refund exception. Anyone not eligible for a refund may elect to defer their entry to a subsequent test. This must be coordinated with the test secretary prior to the later test filling up. A new entry form must be submitted, and any changes of test level which would incur a higher fee will require the entrant to pay the difference.
