Established in 1968, the GSDCE is one of the founding clubs of our parent organization, the German Shepherd Schutzhund Club of Canada (GSSCC) and a member of the WUSV (World Union of German Shepherd Dogs).  Our  club goals and policies are guided by these organizations.

Our members actively train and compete at Local, Regional and National Championship level trials with a variety of working dog breeds including the German Shepherd Dog, Dobermans, RottweilersMalinois and others.

We work actively to uphold and support the standards of the German Shepherd Dog as approved by the WUSV and encourage our members to follow the international standards laid out for all working breeds.

"The most striking feature of the correctly bred German Shepherd are firmness of nerves, attentiveness, unshockability, tractability, watchfulness, reliability and incorruptibility together with courage, fighting tenacity, and hardness." 

Captain Max von Stephanitz
