The GSSCC and its members are committed to a standardized 4 step process to identify dogs that have the right traits to successfully perform a wide variety of tasks.

Required Traits Of The Working Dog:

- structural soundness, effective movement, fitness and strength

- courage, hardness and the will to handle adversity in a variety of forms

- persistence and determination to overcome obstacles and hardships

-  a balanced dog that is versatile and sure of character

The Process To Select and Develop Top Working Dogs

1. Training
2. Testing
3. Certification
4. Entry Into The Breeding Program

We believe that an effective way to select the kind of temperament and structure we value is to test the dogs in the sport of Schutzhund

The training and selecting breeding of dogs possessing those traits also benefit:

- Police and Military
- Service Organizations
- Search and Rescue
