Thanks to Karen Toth for opening her home for our club, joined by members of Northern California German Shepherd Fanciers, to enjoy the annual gift exchange/stealing party!

If you're at our site looking for a German Shepherd puppy, we don't endorse breeders. We do, however, recommend that you find one who signed the German Shepherd Dog Club of America (part of the American Kennel Club, or AKC) Breeder's Code.

DVGSDC will host its annual obedience and rally trials at the indoor Concord Mt. Diablo Dog Training Club facility.

Dates: Feb. 28 and March 1, 2015

Entries: Limited to 29 per trial, AKC herding breeds only

Entries Close at 6 p.m., Wed., Feb. 11, 2015.

We dedicate these trials in loving memory of Fran Ruby, longtime member and friend. Above, Fran with her rescue dog Cody in 2005, having been awarded the Utility Dog (UD) title.
