GSDCA Breed Survey Scheme
The Breed Survey Scheme is a nationally accredited scheme run by the German Shepherd Dog Council of Australia. At a minimum age of eighteen months the dog/bitch is presented to a panel of GSDCA Breed Surveyors who assess the animal not only on its breed worth but also on its character and temperament. During the assessment the dog is gun tested, crowd tested and the dogs reaction to all aspects of the survey observed. Any fault in temperament is an automatic fail no matter how beautiful the animal is. After assessment, providing the dog has the necessary hereditary diseases criteria and has passed the temperament tests, the animal is classified as suitable for breeding and recommendations made as to a suitable mate.
Qualification for Survey :
Any purebred KC registered German Shepherd Dog or Bitch between the age of 18 months and 8 years on the date of the survey.
Object of the Breed Survey :
To promote and offer guidance for the uniform development of the Breed to its inherent working qualities.

For a tooth certificate to be issued the following procedure must be met.

The documentation must be forwarded to the Club Chief Surveyor/Breed Affair Chairman with the required fee.
The onus of proof shall be squarely upon the owner of the dog to prove absolutely beyond all doubt that the said tooth was a normal healthy adult (secondary) tooth.
