2015 Memberships Available to Approved Dog/Handler Teams

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, as well as, the puppy S.T.A.R. certificate.

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 accepted. 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!

 Mina and the bad guy...

If you expect nothing, you will get nothing!

You purchased the working lines puppy and now see that it's full of drive and biting issues. Some well meaning folks will tell you to grab the muzzle and smack its face. Others may tell you to just squeeze the muzzle until the puppy hollers. You've just taken the first steps in ruining your animal with this kind of misinformation.

Your dog or puppy is like a savings account, what you put into now will showcase in the years to come. This is why we use marker training in ever venue. Our protection style of training works more from the concepts of positive, prey development and a simple understanding of the methods for the handler to follow.

Sound like fun? See the action for yourself.
