Welcome to our Website
When was the last time you picked up the newspaper and read about someone being attacked with tennis balls, spray sting, or soda bottles? What about being attacked with a five gallon bucket of water? The truth is that these events never happen in the world we live in. So why would you train and test your protection dog using the same things?
The Delmarva German Shepherd Dog Club is a private organization, one which promotes the working lines German Shepherd breed and other approved breeds on the Delmarva Peninsula. We offer serious training for serious people and their dogs. This isn't a sport training venue where members train for points, ribbons, plaques, or inhouse "titles." Most of us have real world needs, wants, ans purposes for our dogs. So once again we ask, "When was the last time you ever heard of someone being attacked with these items in the REAL WORLD?"
The answer is still the same...YOU DON'T!
Through a variety of structured activities and scenarios that reflect the real world, we train the dog and the owner as one, a team. Our teams train in: on and off leash obedience, control and capping drills, environmental agility and conditioning, tracking and area searching, and K-9 personal protection using bite sleeves and suits. We also offer training and testing for the American Kennel Club's, Canine Good Citizen title, the puppy S.T.A.R. certification, and the Trick Dog title. Our club has two certified evaluators who can train and assess your pet for these areas.
Memberships require your dog or puppy to be up to date on shots and flea and tick treatments, clear thinking, from working lines, and your personal pet...not something you're training for resale. We will work with some dogs from working/show lines. Exceptions to this policy are few and those done will be on an individual basis. Because we train all year, club memberships are usually available year-round and assessments of your dog or puppy are FREE!
A "portal" is described as a doorway or means of entrance. We would like to think our club is that "entrance" for you and your dog to find out what working dog training is about and why our members enjoy it. Thanks for checking out our website and we look forward to meeting you in person!
"The breeding of shepherd dogs is the breedingof working dogs and this must always be the aim or we shall cease to produce shepherd dogs." -Max Von Stephanitz
