About Us

Ground Zero Schutzhund Club was established in 2024 in Southern California, as part of the United Schutzhund Clubs of America South Western Region. USCA is dedicated to protecting and preserving the German Shepherd Dog’s working heritage by hosting conformation shows, breed surveys, and Schutzhund trials. Our group trains on a regular basis throughout Los Angeles, Orange County, and the Inland Empire.

Our club name "Ground Zero" is a nod to our goal of starting something new from the ground up for our region, and revamp what it means to be an IGP sport club. We are hoping to bring new types of training, workshops, events, and thinking to the sport and revolutionize the way people can participate in Schutzhund.
