National Specialty

Show Committee || Video ||Past Results || Procedure Manual

The ASSA National is the club’s annual week-long specialty event. The National is held each spring in a different region of the country and includes conformation, obedience, rally, agility, and herding competitions in addition to educational events. It is also a celebration, as up to 1,000 Shelties with their owners, breeders and friends come together for the once-a-year event.

Videos of the National’s conformation classes are available for purchase, see bottom of this page for information. In addition, ASSA members and member clubs can borrow them from ASSA’s film library.
