The Commonwealth Working Dog Club is the premier training club for competitive Schutzhund sport in the mid-Atlantic area.
It is not a commercial training service, but for those who are dedicated to training their own dogs under the guidance
of experienced dog trainers and with the assistance of fellow club members.
Not for the faint of heart, as all members must attend
majority of training sessions, show dedication to training and have progress with their dogs in order to maintain full membership.
CWDC is for the serious Schutzhund competitor only. All members most go through a three month trial period before the club votes
on potential membership.
The Commonwealth Working Dog Club (CWDC) is incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in the Commonwealth
of Virginia. The CWDC is affiliated with the North Region (Kreisgruppe) of the State Association (Landesverband) America within the
German Association of Working Dog Clubs (Deutscher Verband der Gebrauchshundsportvereine, DVG).
