The GSDCSA is affiliated with the SA Canine Association and is a member of the German Shepherd Dog Council of Australia.The GSDCSA is at the forefront of responsible dog ownership. The club promotes this to our membership and the community at large and has sent representatives to meet with members of Parliament to ensure the continued protection of our beloved breed.The GSDCSA has a Recommended Breeding Practices policy in place whereby responsible breeders within the club adhere to a set of guidelines in terms of breeding. This ensures that prospective purchasers of the German Shepherd Dog will acquire a dog which is bred from both parents participating in the hip and elbow dysplasia schemes and breed survey scheme.The GSDCSA is a single breed club which accepts only pedigreed German Shepherd dogs for membership. The club caters for the obedience, agility and show fraternity and offers training to cover these sports.
