Every few years the Ameri-Can Stabyhoun Association (ASA) holds a Specialty, gathering Stabyhouns and their owners from the U.S. and Canada together with Dutch Judges, speakers, and visitors for three days of fun for dogs and people. This year, the Specialty will be held in Latrobe, PA at a wonderful facility, B&D Creekside Activity Center , on July 18-21. Click here for the schedule of events!
For breeding Stabyhouns, this is the place to be reviewed by at least two judges which is a general requirement for breeding stock; the dog must receive an "excellent" or "very good" rating from two judges. This judging also gives our organization vital information about the health, conformation, and temperment of our dogs.
For all of the Stabyhouns attending there are seminars on various dog sports, certification tests for AKC Canine Good Citizen and AKC Farm Dog. Agility for beginners and experienced, costume contest, "Mirror- Mirror" with all sorts of fun categories for the dogs to compete in, nosework, and so much more. For owners, it's a great chance to meet friends in person, share stories, learn, laugh and enjoy their dogs.
