As a member of our Club please enjoy the facilities we provide and make the most of your membership of the GSDCV.

Club House

The Eastern Club house is there for your use. Feel free to come inside, grab a chair, sit down and relax. We have tables and chairs, a TV with “yes” games for the Children. You are most welcome to bring your Dogs inside, just keep an eye on them and be respectful to other people and dogs. Have a look around and check out some of the history over the walls. Out trophy cabinet reflects some of that history new and old. Bathrooms and Toilets are located in the side hallway.

Canteen/Kitchen (Alias “The Good Shepherd Cafe”)

Our Canteen is located to the left of the building and is open on Sundays. The Canteen manager and volunteers do a great Job with hot and cold food on offer and Oh’ the variety. Drinks are also available and all prices are very reasonable. Come a little early before class and have a bacon and egg sandwich or stay after class and have a hot Chocolate and a chat with Committee, Instructors and Friends. It’s also terrific socializing for the dogs to sit or drop calmly beside you with other people and dogs around.

Equipment Stall (Alias “Eastern Dog Shop”)

We have a well-stocked equipment stall located just outside the storeroom and you come up to the front doors.
• Leads/Collars (ask one of our instructors to help you choose and fit)
• Toys
• Treats – Yum Yum!
• Food
• Training Equipment
• Clothes & other assortment of Goodies!

All equipment is at very competitive prices and your Puppy or Doggy can help you choose. Pigs ears did I hear them say!


Eastern has an number of Books, DVD’s and video’s covering a wide range of topics. If you see anything you like, or which has been recommended by the instructor, just speak to the Membership Officer who also manages the library. The Chief Instructors are in charge of the content of the library. If you have any recommendations or suggestions please speak to one of them.

Dog/Puppy Crates

The Branch has a number of Crates to loan if needed. Sometimes Crates can be good for convalescing Dogs after surgery or small puppies to sleep at night. Crates are booked out on loan and require a deposit which is returned when you bring the crate back. Please see our Membership Officer. You will also need approval from one of the Chief Instructors.


Water Bowls are located out the front of the building. We do have individual bowls if you wish. Be conscience of young puppies and other dogs around the water bowls.
Paddle Pools are available outside when the weather gets a little hotter. Puppies and Dogs are allowed to play in them however, again please be mindful about others and their dogs.
Plastic Bags are available from the front desk. Use these to pick up and Dog Doo. Bins are located out on the ground.
Puppy/Adult Agility Equipment is usually down on the ground on Sundays. Please see Branch Rules with its use or ask an Instructor for help.


Please ask your Committee or Instructors for advice or if there is anything you need. Enjoy your Eastern Facilities.
