"Promoting the true utility nature of the breed"

Welcome to the Delmarva German Shepherd Dog Club Website!

The Delmarva German Shepherd Dog Club is a private organization, one which promotes the working lines German Shepherd breed on the Delmarva Peninsula. Through a variety of club related activities and scenarios, our dogs and their owners can meet for training sessions, clinics, K-9 demonstrations, and to promote upcoming litters from responsible club breeders.

Passion fuels our training! We understand it isn't easy to find clubs like this in the area and in 2013, we opted to accept other approved breeds into the club. We generally require animals to be registered through the American Kennel Club or other approved registry and from working lines, though some work/show lines will be accepted. Memberships are available year-round and open to approved German Shepherds and to non-German Shepherd breeds.

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!

Fall is a great time to get out and train. Cooler temps make it the perfect time for tracking and area searching. Obedience and marker training go hand in hand around here. Our protection style of training works more from the concept of prey development and not defense. We feel it's better to train our dogs in the way they should go and not test them every weekend.

Remember this: your dog is like a savings account, what you put into now will showcase in the years to come... 

 "The breeding of shepherd dogs is the breeding of working dogs and this must always be the aim or we shall cease to produce shepherd dogs." -Max Von Stephanitz
