Kleine Münsterländer – Group North America (KlM-GNA) cordially invites its members  and members of other JGHV affiliated breed clubs to participate in the  Verbandsjugendprüfung (VJP – Association Youth Test), near Rockford, IL, on Friday – Sunday, May 3-5, 2024. 

Dogs with an F.C.I. pedigree, which were whelped after September 30. 2022, are  eligible for admission to the test. Applicants must be members of KlM-GNA or another  JGHV-affiliated breed club. 

The test will be conducted in accordance with the current VZPO (“Regulations for  Association Breed Tests”) of the JGHV.

The test will  be limited to 30 dogs, such that 10 dogs could be tested each day (two groups of five  dogs).
