Welcome to Gippsland Branch!
Gippsland branch is one of 11 branches of the German Shepherd Dog Club of Victoria. Our instructors train in responsible dog ownership and obedience, however if you have another interest such as conformation, rally-o, endurance, tracking and agility please speak to the instructors and they will point you in the right direction. We are a small country branch situated at:
