GSDCC Inc. Canadian National
The German Shepherd Dog Club of Canada has one major show in the fall to end the show season. This is a very large exciting specialty for conformation and obedience and sometimes Agility and Rally with an average of 200-300 GSD's entered from all over Canada, the USA and sometimes Bermuda and even Germany. This is the show to see!!
This is the show of shows as all the work and winning done during the show season is basically capitalized on here as this is where most of the titles of those top dogs are won.
There are opening ceremonies and usually demonstrations during intermissions. There is a video set up to catch all these amazing dogs on tape then tapes are sold to allow breeders to preview the quality from all over and maybe choose that special male they might want to breed their female to in the future. There is a camera shoot for all the winners to keep those prestigious moments forever. There are some beautiful perpetual trophies that stay with the club and grow in size over the years as the names of winners are put on their perspective trophies.
The show is held indoors in a hockey rink (minus the ice) on sod that is brought in specially for this show. The ring for showing is almost the size of the rink itself and it is amazing to watch the stamina of both dogs and handlers going around this ring as they are being judged. The double handlers are a show onto themselves and something to see.
There are booths to shop at, a silent auction, a large trophy table, banners flying and ribbons galore. A cafeteria, cafe and vending machines are available for all your needs.
Fun and camaraderie for all.

The quilt was originally intended for raffle at this year’s National. Maureen, the Executive and Board are now hopeful this unique, special piece will be sponsored back to us, and thus forever stay in our historical collection.
We want to proudly display “Throughout the Years” at every National Specialty show.
The Club’s goal is to raise a minimum of $2000 between now and the end of August. This money will be used to offset the high costs of putting on our world class, indoor event in the coming years.
Unless someone prefers to make an anonymous donation, we will acknowledge your contribution in a very special way! The quilt’s label, sewn on the back, will include your name (or kennel name) as one of the sponsors. Our Club will also include your name in a beautiful “thank you” ad for our 2014 National Catalog. If you can’t attend the show, we will gladly mail you a hard copy of this ad as a keepsake.
“Throughout the Years” is about paying tribute to our past and giving support to the future of our breed.
Will you please help us bring this quilt to its intended home at our show?
Any amount would be greatly appreciated.

“Throughout the Years”
A Commemorative Quilt Featuring our Club’s Logos
The German Shepherd Dog Club of Canada will be unveiling our “Throughout the Years” quilt at this year’s National Specialty Show in Kitchener, Ontario. Now in its final stages of creation, it showcases every Club logo from 1925 to 2014.
Maureen Charlton envisioned, designed and created this quilt and we are grateful for her thoughtfulness and generosity. Her classic, commemorative design also serves to honor our Club’s long-time, hardworking members (past and present), and our beloved German Shepherd Dog.
Club Historian, Librarian and Secretary Tom Morgan found each logo from the Club’s archives, and secured an anonymous donor who had them transferred onto silkscreen. Maureen credits Tom’s hard work and enthusiasm as contributing factors in this idea coming to fruition.
Thank you so much for your support!!!
