The German Shepherd Dog has a great following worldwide and is a very versatile, all-round companion dog. They are used by the armed services and police for protection, tracking, rescue work; for herding and as a guide dog for the blind.

However, the vast majority are owned by Shepherd enthusiasts as beloved family pets.

We hope to give you some understanding of the background of the breed's history and what The German Shepherd Dog League of NSW Inc can offer you in regards to training and general care of your Shepherd.

The GSDL of NSW and the German Shepherd Dog Council of Australia (GSDCA) have been established to promote the breeding, exhibition and overall improvement of the German Shepherd Dog in Australia
