Welcome to our website!
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. This isn't a sport training venue where members train for points, ribbons, plaques, or "titles." You won't find training done with buckets of tennis balls, spray string, or streamers made from empty soda bottles. When was the last time you ever heard of someone being attacked with these items in the REAL WORLD?
Through a variety of activities and scenarios that reflect real world needs and applications, we train the dog and the owner. Our dog and handler 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 and the puppy S.T.A.R. certification. Our club has two certified evaluators who can train and assess your pet for these areas.
Memberships require animals to be up to date on shots, clear thinking, registered through the American Kennel Club or other approved registry, and from working lines. 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 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!
