Welcome to the Specialist Show Training Branch !

We are a training branch of the German Shepherd Dog Club of Victoria, and our specialist show training grounds are at KCC Park, Skye.

Here you can interact with other people who have the same interests as you, the German Shepherd Dog, and particularly the conformation show ring.
Our committee members and instructors have had many years of experience in living with, handling and training German Shepherds and as a club member you can avail yourself to that knowledge base at any time. Our edict is to provide a range of training services and impart information in a friendly and professional manner, whilst encouraging a social atmosphere for both dog and handler, while teaching
the skills of showing your dog.

See you at Show training, preparing for the next show !!!
