In our breed there are special dogs who earn titles and awards that are conveyed and honored by the German Shepherd Dog Club of America.

The German Shepherd Dog Club of America is pleased to be able to share with you these special award winners.

Although the owners of the dogs receiving these titles do not have to be members of the GSDCA in order to be recognized, there are other titles and awards that are given to GSDCA members in recognition of their personal achievements and the achievements of their dogs.  Click here for information about those member awards.

This title is the most prestigious “conformation” award given by the GSDCA in recognition of the quintessential German Shepherds. They excel in conformation, are sound in body, have keen minds which make them capable of and suitable for the many different “jobs” in which society has placed them…i.e…THE TOTAL DOG.
