The Golden Gate Greater Swiss Mountain Dog Club is made up of Swissy lovers throughout Northern and Southern California.
The GGGSMDC is recognized by the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog Club of America and sanctioned by the American Kennel Club to hold AKC competition events. Our goal is to maintain the quality standards of the breed, educate the public about the breed and to enjoy our working dogs while having fun.
The Club has held several AKC specialty events dating back to 1998. Enjoy some photos from our AKC conformation show, the GSMDCA Western Regional in Pleasanton, CA. For those members who prefer not to compete in events with their dogs, the club hosts social events, picnics, workshops, pack hikes, and dog walks at the beach or on trails in parks. Take a look at our Photo gallery for some of these activities as well as the club's Facebook page.
The Blaze, is a very informative quarterly newsletter published by our club which provides information on club activities and contains fascinating articles on the Swissy and dogs in general.
If you have a Swissy and would like to become involved in activities with your dog, we invite you to join our club! This will also provide an opportunity to meet other Swissy owners who enjoy their dogs.
Should you wish to become a member of the Swissy Club, please fill out the Membership form found on the Membership page of this website.
Participate in our Paws-A-Thon to walk, run, or hike with your dog and raise money for the GSMD Rescue Foundation!
