Bay Area German Shepherd Rescue

Just a quick note to tell you that you can order the 2016 Calendar right here!

It's gorgeous and packed with pictures and great stories.   All proceeds go to the dogs!


Stella and her family adopted Ciccia (pronounced Chee-chaw) from us about a year ago. She was Ouzu in our program. They say that Ciccia has been the perfect fit for the their family.

Stella had a lovely idea.  Instead of birthday presents she asked that her friends give her money that she would donate to help the dogs. Not finished with that wonderful offering, she then did a garage sale with the funds again going to rescue.

Huge thanks to Stella from all the dogs.  When you're in rescue and experience some of the sad things we see, stories like this go a long way to restoring your faith in humanity.


Ashley, who is one of our team just told us about a really fun and  cool way to raise money to help our dogs.

Download the Wooftrax app onto your phone.  Link to our rescue and they will donate to us, on behalf of your dog, a few cents for every mile you walk.  It will cost you nothing, your dog will love the walk and you'll feel great knowing that by walking your dog you're helping the rescue dogs  

It took me less than 5 minutes to download the app, enter my dogs details, link to BAGSR and bingo, I'll be walking my dogs for rescue.

Guess what, one of our volunteers is a triathlete :-)

Thanks so much!

Our dogs are super smart and learn very quickly with the right direction.  We are often asked to recommend a dog trainer by people who adopt their new dog.  Our belief is that trainer works with you to help you train your dog. Over the coming days and weeks we will be creating a list with contacts.  We will only list trainers that our members have personally worked with and recommend.

Based in Novato, they offer an extraordinary range of training and behavior classes at very affordable prices. Many of our volunteers have undertaken their dog training classes with their personal dogs.  We are huge fans of Dawn and her entire team. See them on line here and call them on (415) 883-4621


Lisa Caper runs DogOvation covering Marin County.  Several of our volunteers have worked with her and they give great reports.  Like all the best trainers her focus is more on training the owner to train the dog.  You can read all about Lisa's philosophy on her website here and phone her at : (415) 299-1158
