Who We Are
Jeff got his first German Shorthaired Pointer in 1999 and has been hooked on versatile hunting dogs ever since. After attending a NAVHDA training day in 2013, he jumped in with both feet and now has run multiple dogs through the organization's Natural Ability and Utility tests (and took one to the Invitational in 2017). While Jeff enjoys training dogs, he does it with the goal of developing great companions for wild bird hunting. You'll often find him with his dogs in the woods of North Carolina or out somewhere out west, chasing upland birds on public lands.
Doug got his first German Shorthair Pointer Vadar in 2015. He joined NAVHDA and the Tarheel Chapter that same year after meeting NAVHDA members. He jumped right in joining multiple Chapters throughout the east coast training Vadar for his Utility Test. After passing the Utility Test Prize 1 in 2017 and again in 2018. He then went on to run Vadar in the 2018 NAVDHA International Invitational and then passed the 2019 NAVHDA International Invitational with Vadar. In August he and his wife got another German Shorthair Drumlin. If he’s not out training and hunting with his dogs he loves traveling with his wife.
Stephanie was introduced to German Shorthair Pointers when her husband got his in 2015. She started going with him to training days and joined NAVHDA and the Tarheel Chapter herself after becoming hooked. She helped train with her husband and other NAVHDA members on the weekends. In 2019 Stephanie bought her first German Shorthair puppy Drumlin. She is excited to go through the NAVHDA tests and get him the Versatile Champion Title.
Evan got his first German Shorthaired Pointer in 2020 and has been hooked on training and hunting versatile dogs ever since. He joined the Foothills NAVHDA Chapter after running his dog, Ridge in Natural Ability. He has been full steam ahead training and running in the NAVHDA Utility Test ever since. Evan can be found in the central part of Virginia chasing every species of upland and waterfowl in the surrounding area.
