The German Shepherd Dog Advisory Council (GSDAC) is a national organisation involving the German Shepherd Dog and the clubs in New Zealand.
Recognised by the New Zealand Kennel Club (NZKC) in 1978, the German Shepherd Dog Advisory Council (GSDAC) is a body set up by Graham Brayne (von Racher Kennels) who invited representatives of the 4 GSD clubs active in those days to work in co-operation with all German Shepherd Dog clubs recognised by the NZKC.
The Council has over 25,000 tattoos registered and has breed surveyed over 1,000 animals.
The annual membership fee is $25.00 single or $35.00 double and is paid direct to the Advisory Council Treasurer.
That membership fee entitles the member to participate in all schemes and receive our magazine.
