The German Shepherd Dog Club of Victoria Inc. (GSDCV) is the official custodian of the breed in Victoria and is dedicated to the improvement, promotion and protection of the German Shepherd Dog.
The club encourages fellowship and strives to assist in the education of its members, and the public, to a better understanding of the breed, responsible breeding practices, and responsible dog ownership.
The GSDCV is the largest single breed club in Australia today, with a membership in excess of 2,200 and has a long and strong history of which we are justly proud.
