Welcome to the Central New Mexico German Shepherd Dog Club Web Site
The Central New Mexico German Shepherd Dog Club was founded in 1955 in the Albuquerque, New Mexico area and has been dedicated to the enhancement of the breed ever since.
After a long hiatus we are putting the web site back up together with a new and exciting look, or at least we think so
We would love your feedback on the look, color scheme, and what content has been included.
To begin with the site will start empty and we will build on it with time and contributions.
A PET’S TEN COMMANDMENTS
1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.
2. Give me time to understand what you want of me
3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.
4. Don’t be angry with me for long and don’t lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.
5. Talk to me. Even if I don’t understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.
6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.
7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.
8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I’m not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.
9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.
10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can’t bear to watch. Don’t make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.
My eyes are your eyes, to watch and protect you and yours.
My ears are your ears, to hear and detect evil minds in the dark.
My nose is your nose, to scent the invader of our domain.
And so you may live, My life is also yours.

Online travel network selects the Duke City as the country’s best place to visit with Fido
Albuquerque recognized as America’s Most Pet-Friendly City for Travelers
Albuquerque, N.M. April 10, 2013 – Albuquerque, New Mexico has been named by priceline.com as the number one place in America for people traveling with their pets. This ranking comes as a result of the city’s high number of pet-friendly hotels, off-leash dog parks and overall walkability.
“People love their pets and many can’t imagine traveling without them,” said priceline.com’s Chief Marketing Officer Brett Keller. “But not all cities and hotels are created equal when it comes to accommodating four-legged friends. We’ve created this list as a guide to help travelers find the best experiences no matter who’s along for the ride.”
A great place to start that ride with your pet in Albuquerque – Route 66. Beautiful spring temperatures pave the way for a relaxing stroll with Fido down Central Avenue, formerly known as Route 66, here in Albuquerque. Everything from dog boutiques and groomers to pet-friendly lodging is accessible along the city’s main drag. When it’s time to stop for a drink, make a pit stop at a pet-friendly patio (“petio”) like Kelly’s Brew Pub or O’Neill’s Irish Pub. Local Flying Star restaurants also offer great petios around town.
“Whether you are exploring the Downtown Growers Market or shopping at one of our local establishments, you will encounter people enjoying what our city has to offer with their pets,” said Dale Lockett, President & CEO of the Albuquerque Convention & Visitors Bureau. “They are part of our everyday lives here, and we are thrilled that priceline.com has recognized Albuquerque at the top of their pet-friendly destination list.”
Around the city, Albuquerque residents and visitors enjoy 13 dog parks, many pet-friendly lodging options and a handful of great dog-friendly hiking trails like those at Elena Gallegos Picnic Area and Petroglyph National Monument. Each November, Animal Humane New Mexico puts on its largest fundraiser and signature event at Balloon Fiesta Park called the Doggie Dash & Dawdle that welcomes locals and visitors alike.
The top ten cities on the list are:
1) Albuquerque, NM
2) Portland, OR
3) Tucson, AZ
4) Tampa, FL
5) Indianapolis, IN
6) Salt Lake City, UT
7) Austin, TX
8) Tulsa, OK
9) Louisville, KY
10) San Francisco, CA
When visiting Albuquerque you can visit any of these dog friendly City parks: Albuquerque Dog Parks
And when in Rio Rancho, you have these park options: Roi Rancho Dog Parks Rio Rancho does ask that dogs over 6 months be spayed or neutered. They don’t seem to be professional dog owner friendly.
