"Promoting the true utility nature of the breed"

Welcome to the Delmarva German Shepherd Dog Club Website!


"Full Grips"

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 our dogs and their owners can meet for training sessions, clinics, K-9 demonstrations, and to promote upcoming litters from responsible club breeders.

The passion each member has is shared through our love for K-9 training and this breed. Memberships are available year-round and open to approved German Shepherds and to non-German Shepherd breeds. 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. Our desire is to promote the true utility nature of the animal and not the stylized, roached-back, and contorted looks which are often seen with the breed.

Why would we provide training to non-German Shepherd breeds? We understand it isn't easy to find clubs like this or ones that aren't sport dog venues. Once you've seen our training, you will understand our passion!

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!
