The GSDC of Mpls & St. Paul was founded in 1950 to promote the responsible breeding of the German Shepherd Dog; to procure the adoption of the "Standard of The German Shepherd Dog" as approved by the American Kennel Club by breeders, judges, dog show committees and others as the recognized standard by which this breed shall be judged; to protect, advance and improve the interests of the breed by offering prizes, giving and supporting breed and obedience shows and in general to aid in every possible means in demonstrating its conspicuous abilities as a companion, war, Red Cross, police, herding and lead dog for the blind; and finally to bring together, help and encourage all GSD owners in every way without discrimination against any person on the basis of age, race, color, sexual preferences or religion.
German Shepherd Dogs are a very active, intelligent breed. Owning one is a big commitment and part of ensuring that you have a happy canine family member is to keep them active both mentally and physically. If you have had your German Shepherd Dog for any length of time you have surely experienced “the look”. This happens when your dog is staring at you, ears perked, eyes wide as if to say, “So, what are we going to do next?” This breed is both athlete AND scholar. It is a dog that desires to be active in body and in mind while being with his human partner every step of the way. With one of the best companions in the canine world at your side there are many opportunities for you to partner up and have a great time.
The German Shepherd Dog Club of Minneapolis and St. Paul promotes German Shepherd Dogs, and encourages and supports their owners. Our club holds monthly membership meetings, which include a program specific to the breed.
We welcome prospective members! All you need is an interest in the German Shepherd Dog and a willingness to help our club with your time, when needed. Any member may sponsor you, and upon attending your second membership meeting, you are a member! If you have any questions, please feel free to call any of us.
We support responsible breeding of the German Shepherd Dog, and are committed to providing new owners with healthy puppies of correct type, temperament and movement of the German shepherd Dog.
