The Ameri-Can Stabyhoun Behavior and Training has been organized into three separate groups to better focus on Membership’s Training Needs:
- Ain’t Misbehavin’ – Stabyhoun behavior problem solving, manners, fears/anxieties.
- Puppies – Ages 2-12 months – Puppy socialization, learning, foundation
- Sports and Performance – Coaching for competition, fun and/or back yard activities
Members of the ASA are volunteering their time to help the entire Association with questions or advice in each area. Facebook groups are being formed for posting specific questions, advice, articles, videos for each of the areas.
