Watching working dogs work...Welcome to the 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, 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.emberships are generally available year-round and open to approved German Shepherd owners and their dogs, trainers, handlers, and breeders. We generally require those animals to be registered through the American Kennel Club or other approved registry and from working lines, though work/show 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. All members shall remain in good standing to retain memberships.

Our K-9 training is available to owners of German Shepherds and to non-German Shepherd breeds. Why would we provide training to non-German Shepherd breeds? We understand it isn't easy to find clubs like this and that aren't in sport dog venues. 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!
