We are so excited for you and your new Nosam puppy! Before you bring home your new puppy and begin a lifetime of love and companionship together, there are a few things you'll need to prepare for your pups arrival. 

We want to ensure our puppies thrive in their forever homes, we've put together a shopping list of our favorite items.

Training the Versatile Hunting Dog shows you how to develop a great hunting dog with Chuck s new approach. This approach emphasizes letting your young dog first develop his natural abilities: use of nose, desire, cooperation, search, pointing, and tracking. Then, after his first season, Chuck shows you how to put the controls on your dog with chapters on the trained retrieve and whoa training. The versatile breeds also love water, and there are detailed chapters showing you how to train your dog to be an outstanding water retriever. Chuck also covers how to pick a pup, the importance of early socialization, introducing your pup to gunfire and to birds. This is a revolutionary book written for the popular versatile hunting breeds: German shorthair, wirehair, Griffon, Vizsla, and Weimaraner among others.

The North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association (NAVHDA) is a nonprofit corporation whose purpose is to foster, promote, and improve the versatile hunting dog breeds in North America; to conserve game by using well trained reliable hunting dogs before and after the shot. NAVHDA offers training days when you join a local chapter
