German Shepherd Dog Club of Central Massachusetts
The members of the German Shepherd Dog Club of Central Massachusetts would like to introduce ourselves to you and invite you to come meet us.

  • We are a club formed to encourage and promote the breeding of German Shepherd Dogs and to do all possible to bring their natural qualities to perfection.
  • We urge members and breeders to accept the standard of the breed as approved by the American Kennel Club as the only standard of excellence by which German Shepherd Dogs are judged.
  • We do all we can to protect and advance the interests of the breed by encouraging sportsman-like competition at dog shows and all companion dog events. We conduct AKC sanctioned and licensed specialty shows, all obedience competitions and sheep herding events.

Our membership is made up of anyone interested in the German Shepherd Dog.  We have breeders, obedience enthusiasts, sheep herding and rally competitors among our membership.  We have 8 to 10 meetings a year which offer everyone a chance to share ideas, ask questions, visit with other shepherd owners and to learn from our special programs.  We run at least two specialty German Shepherd Dog Shows and one competition obedience/rally trial (open to AKC sanctioned mixed breeds) and two sheep herding events per year.  The club also runs special seminars and clinics on such topics as obedience training, tracking, grooming, health issues and breeding.

If you would like to be notified of our upcoming meetings, or if you would like to apply for membership, please go to our website at GSDCCM.ORG or contact Paula Peters, Corresponding Secretary ( for further information.
