Benefits of ADSA Membership

The benefits of ADSA membership are the ability to connect with other Dutch Shepherd enthusiasts, to promote the Dutch Shepherd as one breed with three varieties: Short, Long, and Rough hair. As a member you will get the opportunity to participate in sharing of information and education about the breed via membership Facebook forum groups. As a club, members work to preserve the traditional versatile working characteristics of the purebred Dutch Shepherd through sound and ethical breeding programs. There may be opportunities for mentorship if a prospective member is interested in breeding. There are also opportunities for members to participate and assist in ADSA sponsored events, health, and educational programs.
