The Brisbane Sporting Dog Club began in October 1989 when 12 dog owners came together to train in Dogsport.
Ten foundation members headed for Adelaide where the first Dogsport trial was held with 5 dogs and 1 bitch.
All entered the trial with the simple hopes of passing .
The outcome: Of 6 dogs entered, 4 qualified for SchH1
These 4 dog-handler teams placed 1st , 3rd , 4th and 5th of 17 dogs entered
The 1st placed Schutzhund I also placed 2nd overall – only 1 point behind the SchH3 dog that was overall winner
These results, while competing against far more established clubs from all over Australia, proved that the foundation members had emerged as trainers in their own right.
Of note, the first ever Schutzhund III titles to be awarded in the state of Queensland went to 3 B.S.D.C. members in 1994.
The club’s first trial was held in August 1991, and the club continues to promote and support the sport in Australia, regularly hosting internationally respected trainers from Europe, USA & Canada for seminars, workshops and trials, many of which are open to interested parties from within the wider canine community.
A majority decision by club members at a general meeting held in 2001 saw B.S.D.C. join with the national association of Australian United Sportdog Clubs inc. (AUSC now changed to WGSDCA Working German Shepherd & Dogsport Clubs of Australasia Inc). The WGSDCA has clubs spread across 4 states of Australia and New Zealand giving our sport true national representation.Quis autem vel eum iure reprehenderit qui in ea voluptate velit esse quam nihil molestiae consequatur, vel illum qui dolorem eum fugiat quo voluptas nulla pariatur?
