It’s Good to brag once in a while…

German Shepherds are so awesome and versatile that we think its time for a dedicated space where their accomplishments can be acknowledged. Many of our club members are out training, showing, and working their dogs all the time. And when we reach a milestone, it’s because a lot of time and energy was spent in the effort.

My Image

We want to hear about your accomplishments..

So, if you’re a club member, and want to share your accomplishment, whether its a new title, a qualifying score, or whatever, fill out the brag form on the left and send it in. Attach a photo too! Log in to the Brag Form with your club member username and password.

Posting your brags helps the rest of us to appreciate the versatility of the German Shepherd even more. And sometimes, when we are feeling like we will never get there, we can be inspired in the fact that our dogs (despite their people sometimes) have amazing success stories to tell..

You might also inspire another member to try a new activity with their dog or a future club member to get a German Shepherd Dog.
