German Shepherd Dog Club of San Diego County

Founded in 1945


​​"For nobility of character, purpose, and appearance, few animals can surpass the German Shepherd Dog. This breed's courage, steadfast heart, and keen senses have endeared him to mankind.The German Shepherd Dog is a wonderful, active, and dignified companion."


This year we are celebrating our 75th Anniversary!

The club, founded in 1945, is considered the oldest specialty dog club in the West.  Its membership is active in conformation, obedience, working, herding, tracking, agility, and rally.

You might have noticed our logo has changed.  We asked local High School students to submit logo ideas and the winner is proudly displayed.  The logo was created by Jason Smith, a senior at Grossmont High School studying Graphic Design.  Congratulations Jason!










NEW for 2020! Our club has been approved by the AKC to host Scent Work trials!  Many of our members participate in a variety of dog sports.  We are excited to add Scent Work trials!
