Mission Statement and Purpose
The Dutch Shepherd Dog Club of America's stated purpose is to promote responsibility and good sportsmanship in the breeding, training and exhibition of the Dutch Shepherd under the breed standard established and approved by the United Kennel Club in 1995. Our goals are to:
A. To further the advancement of the Dutch Shepherd breed through the medium of their owners and to develop their intelligence as well as their physical abilities.
B. To confer honor upon worthy Dutch Shepherd dogs and their owners/trainers, and to aid members of the Club to attain conformation and performance degrees through cooperative training and mutual support.
C. To promote fair play and good sportsmanship over individual gain, and to join the competitive spirit with the fun environment of United Kennel Club events.
We offer three types of membership, all at NO COST.
Club Members (Dutch Shepherd owners who have successfully titled in conformation, performance or companion sports or certified through authoritative agencies)
Associate Members (Dutch Shepherd owners)
Supporting Members (Admirers of the Dutch Shepherd breed)
