Breed Survey

Breed Surveys are conducted four times during the year and are usually held in March, May, August and October.  These months are subject to change depending on other events that may be held.  Dates will be published in the Calendar of events.

Breed Surveys are run by the GSDC of SA on behalf of the GSDCA.

Extract from Breed Survey manual Section 5.2  [Feburary 2020] – Animals should be surveyed in the State of domicile however it shall not be compulsory.  If an owner wishes to survey in a state other than their state of domicile, they must advise the NBC Chairperson via email  who will advise the relevant SBSC Coordinators.

For whatever reason, representation of animals will only be accepted if the animal is presented again to the Breed Survey Panel where the original survey was conducted.

Where the original survey was conducted at a National Show, application may be made to the NBC Executive to re-present to a different panel and location.

Breed Survey Index Book

An index of all Breed Surveyed animals has been put together and can be found on the GSDCA website.  These include all animals surveyed from 1978-2011.  These files will be updated from time to time to include further survey years.  Please be patient downloading these files – they are very large!
