This Code is established in accordance with the objectives of the GSDCA to protect and advance the interests of German Shepherd Dogs.
  • Each member will be familiar with the GSD standard as approved by the GSDCA and The American Kennel Club.
  • Each member agrees to abide by the GSDCA by-laws, the GSDCA Membership Code of Conduct, the Rules and regulations of the American Kennel Club.
  •  All members will conduct themselves at all times in such a manner as to reflect credit on the sport of purebred dog showing and German Shepherd Dogs in particular.  This includes respect for the show site and all other aspects of responsible dog ownership.
  • Member’s dogs will be an asset to their community.
  • No GSD will be sold to wholesalers or retail stores for the purpose of resale.  No GSD will be sold, leased, or offered at stud to franchised commercial facilities, businesses, or agents thereof.  No GSD will be sold or donated to a research laboratory or offered as a prize or sold at auction.
  • Members who contemplate breeding a litter, or who allow the use of their stud dog to the same end, will direct their efforts toward producing dogs of exceptional quality, temperament, and condition and should sign the GSDCA Breeder’s Code of Ethics.

 

The German Shepherd Dog Club of America, Inc., also known as the Parent Club by breed enthusiasts, was formed in 1913 & incorporated February 7, 1916, by seven people:

Anne Tracy, Margaret C. Throop, Edith May Schley, Vemon Castle, John Volkman, Paul Huhn, & B.R. Ruggles

The purposes for which the Corporation was formed are:

1) To promote the breeding of the German Shepherd Dog;

2) To define precisely and publish definition of the true type, and to urge the adoption of such types on
    breeders, judges, dog show committees, etc., as the only recognized and unvarying standard by which
    the German Shepherd Dog is to be judged, and which may in the future be uniformly accepted as the
    sole standard of excellence in breeding and awarding prizes of merit;

3) To do all in its power to protect and advance the interests of the breed by offering prizes, supporting
    certain shows, encouraging the development of working qualities and taking any other steps that may
    seem advisable;

4) To promote its most conspicuous characteristics as Police Dog, War Dog, Red Cross Dog, and Herding
     Dog, and;

5) To encourage therefore all trial and demonstrations in which those qualities may be shown, so as to
    interest the public generally, but especially the police and other municipal organizations in our ideals.

 

With these principles still guiding us, let our Club today continue to work for the betterment of German Shepherd Dogs in whatever way we are able.
