What is the GSDCA?

The German Shepherd Dog Club of America

The German Shepherd Dog Club of America (GSDCA) is an association that is closely affiliated with the American Kennel Club (AKC) and World Schäferhundverein (WUSV).

Established in 1913 the GSDCA has remained true to the purpose of its creation.

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.
