13’s Club Honour Roll
The average life expectancy of a German Shepherd Dog is between 10 and 13 years, with frequent examples in excess of those figures. It is a wonderful achievement for animals to achieve the grand old age of 13 years. As a club, the GSDL voted at their meeting held on Monday 8 October to celebrate this wonderful milestone by starting the 13’s Club Honour Roll, a way in which a dog which has celebrated its 13th birthday, along with the owner and breeder, could be recognised.
Firstly for the animal, as with many breeds the GSD is not precluded from illness and ailments that may take an animal at a younger age. The owners of these senior citizens are also to be congratulated as their nurturing and care has been invaluable, giving their companion the love and attention necessary to reach this wonderful age. In some instances, bringing these loved animals into the world, whilst in the majority of cases loving their golden oldie from an 8 week old bundle of fluff, through the naughty adolescent months prior to maturity and then enjoying them growing old gracefully.
If your Dog has attained the age of 13 years please apply for your Certificate by providing the following information:
- Dogs Name (including the pedigree name if applicable),
- Date of birth
- Photo of the dog (preferably in their old age)
Forward details to:

A Certificate will be sent to you, their achievement will be published in both Shepherd News and as a permanent inclusion on the GSDL website’s l3’s Club Honour Roll
