Denver Samoyed Association is a community of members passionate about the Samoyed Breed and committed to the preservation and advancement of the Samoyed. We are Samoyed fanciers located mostly along the front range area of Colorado, although we have members in other areas of Colorado, and even other states, and welcome members who share our passion and goals.
As a club we work to educate our members and the public about Samoyed traits, training, grooming and temperament. We hold an annual 2-day Specialty Show with Conformation, Obedience and Rally, and a separate Agility Trial. In addition, we enjoy various social events, with and without dogs, during the year.
We participate in a variety of activities with our Samoyeds, including Conformation Shows, Rally, Obedience, Agility, Weight Pull, Herding, CAT and FastCAT Trials. Summertime finds us pack hiking in the Colorado mountains, and winter is great for skijoring and sledding.
DSA is a member club of the Samoyed Club of America and is a specialty breed club licensed by the American Kennel Club.
At the end of a day, our Samoyeds are beloved members of our families, just as they were hundreds of years ago in their native lands.
