GSDC Mpls & St. Paul Upcoming Events

The German Shepherd Dog Club of Minneapolis and Saint Paul is committed to promoting the German Shepherd Dog and the future of the breed. The club does so in a variety of ways, beginning with socialization classes for young puppies, and training to all levels of obedience, rally, herding, conformation showing and therapy and service work.

As a regional club we support the German Shepherd Dog Club of America, and encourage exhibiting and participating in events at AKC recognized shows and matches given by other dog clubs.

We encourage and hold programs that educate and support the German shepherd dog owner, as well as start newcomers into the sport of dog show exhibiting, and performance trials. In addition, we promote the German Shepherd Dog through promotions, such as benching at the Minnesota State Fair, and holding our own specialty shows and matches.

As a large club, we have tremendous experience and resources for the German shepherd enthusiast to draw upon. Lastly, we are committed to the German Shepherd Dog for what he was created to be; a loyal companion and friend.

The German Shepherd Dog Club of Mpls & St. Paul meets on the second (2nd) Friday of every month at Animal Inn Training Center unless otherwise posted.    Map & Directions

Match - March 23, 2018

Come, bring a dish to share. Meet some old friends, make some new ones.

A sanctioned match is an informal event at which neither Championship points nor credit toward an Agility, Rally, Obedience, or Tracking title are awarded. They are events at which dog clubs, judges, stewards, and exhibitors and their dogs gain experience needed for licensed events.

All of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows, and the Agility, Tracking, and Obedience/Rally Regulations also apply to sanctioned matches.

Our next Match we be held at the Animal Inn in Lake Elmo. Please stop by, or enter if you have a GSD in Conformation, Obedience, or Rally Obedience. This is a good opportunity to check out a new event and have fun without the pressure of a real dog show. It is truly a fantastic event to see the wonderful handlers and our dogs compete.

Even if you have never been to a dog show or event, this is a great way to see what all the buzz is about. The atmosphere is relaxed and the people are friendly and willing to answer questions.

Socialization / Obedience Workshop
by Ron Halling
March 24, 2018

Ron Halling is pleased to announce his upcoming Monthly Socialization and Obedience Workshop. At this workshop students will have fun training with ideas that they learn at the workshop and practice during the month. Your dog will be wagging it's tail as it learns to work with you as the pack leader guiding the team. This is a positive and confidence building training for your German Shepherd.

The purpose of these workshops is to introduce you to the other local German Shepherd owners in a relaxed environment while improving socialization/obedience skills and knowledge. Students of all levels are welcome.
