Promoting responsibility and good sportsmanship in the breeding, training and exhibition of the Dutch Shepherd Dog under the breed standard established by

the United Kennel Club in 1995.

OFA Certification

The Dutch Shepherd Dog Club of America™ endorses the United Kennel Club philosophy promoting the working aspect of the pure bred dog and designing its events for dogs that look AND perform equally well.

 
It sometimes makes no difference how intelligent a dog may be if it suffers from physical faults that restrict or inhibit the dog from performing tasks required.  Therefore, we encourage Dutch Shepherd breeders to do everything possible to eliminate hip and elbow dysplasia by only using breeding stock that is x-ray cleared (hips and elbows) with OFA certification obtained at the appropriate age.
