The pandemic couldn't keep us away for long and we're so happy to announce our first event since the last club trial in November 2019. We're very pleased to have Bernhard Prem return to San Diego as our SV judge to oversee the offering of AD, BH, and IGP titles. Fill out an entry form and come join us on beautiful Fiesta Island!
Thanks to Nick Rura for this great drone footage.
One of our longest-tenured club members, Guy Nguyen, provided these photos from the first DSC club trial 17 years ago. He is shown handling V. Asko vom Giliannes during the protection phase of the trial.
Asko earned Sch 3, FH1, and KKL1 (Life) titles during his time with the club
Asko is one of the rare working line German Shepherds to earn a "V" rating in a conformation show

Special thanks to Michael McKinney and David Belanich for assisting with the bicycle riding during the AD trial. In addition, all of the club members wish to offer thanks to Leon Luszcz for all of his time and dedication to the club.
Several competitors traveled significant distances to participate in the trial and we certainly appreciate their efforts. Linda Bettys and Shaq joined us from Big Bear City, CA. Alethea Caldwell Munsinger and Apollo joined us from Tucson, AZ. Karen Wolff with Annie and Flair joined us from Fremont, CA. Finally, Thomas Schoder with Hannes and Soffi joined us all the way from Melba, ID.
Last but certainly not least, a very special thanks to our club helper, Victor Belanich, who completed his second club trial as a GSDCA-certified helper. His tireless work again won high praise from Judge Bernhard Prem.
Our club, Deutscher Schaferhunde Club of San Diego (DSCSD), is an SV Regional Club within the German Shepherd Dog Club of America (GSDCA). If you plan to enter your dog in a GSDCA-sanctioned conformation show or trial, you, as an individual or family, must first become a member of the GSDCA.
Every dog entered in a GSDCA-sanctioned conformation show or trial must have its own scorebook. After you've secured your GSDCA membership, please contact Joy Schultz at the GSDCA to obtain a scorebook for your dog.
