We keep a CLOSE eye on everything that we do, from starting to working seasoned dogs.
Club trainer Charlie Tanner III with K-9 Gunnar.
Welcome and thanks for stopping by...
The DGSDC trains working lines animals or working lines with some show. We're located northwest of Harrington, Delaware on the Delmarva Peninsula. While we're listed as a German Shepherd club, we will work with other breeds and mixes if they can do the training we offer.
Our club meets regularly on Sunday morning from 8:30 AM to around noon.
What types of training do we offer? We aren't a sport dog club so training for PSA, Schutzhund/IPO, or Mondo or other sport dog venues isn't possible. The club offers real world scenario based training for beginner to advanced obedience and protection work. The majority of our members want training that reflects their real wants and needs, applications which fit their daily life.
We use marker training with lots of praise and rewards, no old school YANK and CRANK training is done here. Our club offers: On and Off Leash Obedience, Protection Training, Tracking and Area Searching, AKC-CGC Training/Testing, Problem Solving, and there's a full Agility/Obstacle Course.
We have two AKC CGC Evaluators, both Charlie Tanner III and Howard Gaines III can help you with the CGC, CGCA, CGCU, Trick Dog titles, and the puppy STAR certificate.
If you don't do obedience work with your pet here, you can't do protection work!
