Welcome to the German Shepherd Dog Club of Victoria!


The Bendigo Branch of the German Shepherd Dog Club of Victoria is one of the eleven GSDCV Inc branches through out Victoria.

We are located on at Longlea Reserve on the corner of McIvor Highway and Longlea Lane, Longlea (see link at the bottom of the page for the map)

Bendigo Branch is open on Sundays commencing 29th January 2017 and finishes for the Christmas break in mid December. Occasionally we are closed due to public holidays, shows or other special occasions. In this situation you will be advised the previous week during announcements, in our newsletter and a reminder will be sent out to all members who are on our email contact list. 

At Bendigo we most of all want our members to:

  • Enjoy owning a German Shepherd Dog
  • Have fun with your German Shepherd whilst training
  • Feel free to ask questions from our qualified instructors
  • Come to our Branch with a willingness to learn
  • Enjoy socialising at our Branch and our social functions

Bendigo welcomes all feed back concerning our activities. Positive comments are always welcome, however constructive criticism is also welcomed so that we may grow and improve our services for all our members.

If you want a German Shepherd that......

  • Is obedient
  • Is well socialised with other dogs and people
  • Is a joy to walk in public
  • Can amaze your family & friends
  • Can compete in events Nationally

We can help you achieve the above and more.

Training Times

  • Obedience training commences promptly at 9.00am (at the start of the hot weather 9.30am)
  • It is advisable to be at the training ground 30 minutes before classes begin, to register for classes, for warm up & to settle your GSD down, as it is rather exciting for them to meet up with their GSD & human mates.
  • Before Class commences the Branch Manager & Chief Instructor will inform you of any upcoming dates/notices that you should be aware of.
  • All dogs on Longlea Recreation Reserve must have a current vaccination certificate.
