About TCSC


TWIN COUNTY SCHUTZHUND CLUB (TCSC) was established and incorporated in 1978 in Shelton, Washington. The founding members of this organization developed
by-laws according to the finest traditions of dog training as a whole and schutzhund training specifically.


"We support the total working dog and good canine citizenship." 

TCSC has hosted events in addition to our schutzhund trials that include the Canine Good Citizen tests, American Temperament Test Society test, American Herding Breed Association tests and trials, Agility workshops, AKC tracking certifications, Tattoo clinics, and tracking classes.


Now training in Tacoma, WA.  
Twin County Schutzhund Club
trains throughout the year. The club training day is Sunday beginning at 9:00 a.m. and ending when every dog is done. All three phases of the schutzhund work are practiced on the full training day. The members train during the week on their own  in reduced versions of the  
primary training day. 



TCSC held trials and the members gained points for the Sports Medals awarded by two separate schutzhund organizations. Beginning in 1981, TCSC became a full member club with the United Schutzhund Clubs of America (USA).TCSC held no less than two trials a year.
As active dog trainers, the members of TCSC progressed through all levels of schutzhund all the way to  SchH III/IPO III, FH. 


We are proud of our home-trained, home-bred dogs titled at our trials and at other trials in the region. To date, TCSC has accomplished more than 90+ schutzhund titles including SchH I, II, III, FH and IPO. In addition, the club members have also garnered over 350 other titles in many different disciplines of dog work. Though USA's focus is on the German Shepherd Dog, we promote and encourage all breeds of working dogs. We've come to respect and understand the differences as well as the similarities among the breeds


Business meetings (a vital process  for any active club) are held on the second Sunday of each month. Participation in the training and the business is expected. Our fund raising efforts require full membership cooperation and support. We continually need funds to buy equipment and finance the trials we hold once or twice a year. We also must support our land fund.  This is TCSC's dream:
a field of our own.

As you can see, TCSC is an independent group who wish
to learn more, train more, gain more while we love and admire the animals that make it all possible: our dogs.
We invite anyone who feels the same to join us.
