The GSDCA-WDA is an affiliate of the German Shepherd Dog Club of America, Inc. (GSDCA), and assists it in developing an American Working Dog Program. The GSDCA-WDA manages the selection of the IPO dog/handler teams to represent the GSDCA in the World Championships. Many of the members of the GSDCA-WDA organization are officers, directors and members of the GSDCA.
In addition to joining as an individual GSDCA-WDA member, we encourage our members to join or form local GSDCA-WDA training clubs. IPO training is ideal for the club or group atmosphere where equipment is available and experienced trainers can share their understanding of the sport. Clubs offer an opportunity for you to become involved in the very challenging and rewarding sport of IPO. Any number of personal goals can be fulfilled such as recreation, competition, a better understanding of dog training, or simply the development of a dog into a sound, well-rounded companion.
