what is the german shepherd dog council of australia (GSDCA)?
The German Shepherd Dog Council of Australia (Inc.) was founded 13 March, 1960, and, like a number of other single dog breed councils, is directly affiliated with the Australian National Kennel Council (ANKC). It comprises all of the German Shepherd Dog clubs and associations in the states and territories of Australia

what are the breed improvement schemes?
The GSDCA has introduced a number of tests for the screening of adult dogs for the improvement  of the breed, including several which focus on hereditary diseases. These latter schemes include the Hip ("A") and Elbow ("Z") Dysplasia Control Schemes and the Haemophilia Scheme.

Adult dogs (over eighteen months of age), after having successfully passed these schemes are encouraged to be presented for Breed Survey (BS CL).
