Trainers, Veterinarians, & Boarding Kennels

Please note that any one trainer or training method may not work for every dog and owner combination. It is up to the owner to be responsible for the safety, health and well being of their dog. Each owner should investigate multiple options to find the best fit for themselves and their dog. You should also ask for a tour of any facility where you might board your dog. Some veterinarians have more experience with GSDs than others but specific breed experience does not ensure that one veterinarian is better than another.

The following are offered as a resource only. They are not necessarily recommended or inspected by Golden State German Shepherd Rescue and by no means is this a complete list of all qualified companies or individuals. If you would like to add information to this list, please email all the contact information to webmaster@gsgsrescue.org.
