GSDCA SV Programs
German Shepherd Dog Club of America
GSDCA is dedicated to the welfare and betterment of the German Shepherd Dog. As a member of the WUSV (World Union of German Shepherd Dog Clubs) the GSDCA SV Programs provides enthusiasts a framework for activities in the United States patterned after those available to the world-wide GSD community. GSDCA member clubs host IGP trials, conformation shows and breed surveys in keeping with the Total Dog Concept. This concept supports a dog that conforms to the breed standard and is also proficient in working skills, such as herding, tracking, obedience, or protection. Since the German Shepherd Dog was intended to be a working dog, our club activities are designed to preserve the necessary genetic vigor and characteristics of the breed.
