Call For Benchers! To get on the list to Bench at the Minnesota State Fair Contact: Bobby Moore

Again this year the GSDCMSP will have a bench everyday at the fair. That means German Shepherds every day. What a great venue to show of our dogs and teach the public about the wonderful breed we share our lives with.

All members of the German Shepherd Dog Club of Mlps & St. Paul are invited to participate. If you have a well socialized GSD or two, we welcome you to spend a day benching at the fair. What is benching? Benching is showing off your love for the breed and educating hundreds of people at the same time. For more information check out State Fair.

AKC Scent Work As discussed last fall, our Club is exploring opportunities to get involved in hosting AKC Scent Work trials in 2018. Sarah Falk is heading up the Committee. Our first step is educate our members by sending out information about the sport - so here it is! AKC's website has overview and info and a page on how to get involved and detailed Rules and Regulations. There are several training schools in the area that offer training in Nosework/Scentwork. Feel free to contact Sarah for recommendations to an experiened trainer in your area.

Want Free Training? Volunteer at the Training Desk! - We are looking for volunteers to help out at the training desk on Friday nights. It's a great way to meet and get to know the students that love their GSDs, and other Club members like yourself. Great way to get involved! Reach out to Laura Herweyer at

Upcoming Events

A quick look at upcoming events.

To see the Summer & Fall 2018 training schedule, January 5th, 2018-June 29th, 2018 go to training calendar.

Our Club supports the German Shepherd Dog and our members by offering training, fun events, hosting competitions in several activities (both performance trials and conformation events) and opportunities for official certifications (Canine Good Citizen, Therapy Dog International, GSDCA Temperament Certification, etc.). It's important we continue to support each other's interests as it takes a village to run our Club and put on all these events, and we do it for the good of the breed and our members.
