  2. Puppies – Ages 2-12 months – Puppy socialization, learning, foundation
  3. 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.
