"Serious Training for Serious People"

Welcome to the Delmarva German Shepherd Dog Club Website!




Charles Tanner's, Apollo wasn't letting this guy take his money.


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. We aren't training for points, ribbons, or national championships. Through a variety of activities and scenarios our dogs and their owners train in obedience, environmental agility,  and K-9 personal protection. We also offer AKC-CGC training and testing and the puppy S.T.A.R. certification.

Memberships require animals to be clear thinking, registered through the American Kennel Club or other approved registry, and from working lines, though some work/show lines will be considered. Exceptions to this policy are few and those done will be on an individual basis. Because we train all year, club memberships are 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!

Serious training for serious people!

You've purchased a working lines puppy and now see that it's full of drive. Your next step is finding a place to train that's fun for both the puppy and the handler. What you do NOW may impact it for the rest of its life. Our protection style of training works more from the concepts of positive, prey development and simple methods for the handler to follow. Sound like fun? See the action for yourself
