Heartland NAVHDA Test Policies:

    • To secure a spot in a Heartland NAVHDA Chapter Test, the Test Secretary must receive both a completed entry form and the entry fe.  An entry form is no complete unless all required information is provided.
    • Entry into a Heartland NAVHDA test is on a first come first served basis. 
    • Entry into a Heartland NAVHDA test is not secured until the Test Secretary has received the entry form and payment.  
    • NAVHDA registration is required of all dogs running a NAVHDA test.  The NAVHDA registration number is required on the entry form. 
    • The Test Entry form ccan be found on the International NAVHDA website.  Complete the form, print, and mail with the check for entry fee to the test secretary.
    • An entry may be withdrawn at any time, an entry fee refund will only be issued if the test was full at the time and the spot was filled by a dog on the waiting list.  In the case of a withdrawal before the test was full, a refund of the entry fee will be issued if the test subsequently reaches capacity.  
    • An entry may be withdrawn if the dog has a disabling injury or illness, a refund will be issued on receipt documentation of a veterinarian.  
    • An owner may substitute a dog of the same testing level for a dog already entered.  An owner may substitute a handler on an entry.  However, changes of both dog and handler are considered a new entry and must go to the end of the waiting list if one exists.  If a substitution occurs the dog owner is required to submit a corrected test entry form with the new information.
    • If your entry is received after the test has been filled, you will be placed on a waiting list and receive notification.  If you do not want to be placed on the wiating list you can request to have your entry fee and test entry refunded at that time.
    • Entry fees for those not placed as an active participant of the test will be refunded/returned and your entry form shredded.
