About the Club

United States Schipperke Club (USSC)
Our mission is encourage all purebred Schipperkes with or without tails.

The USSC has adopted a unique set of values that consider the health and wellness of all Schipperkes.

The United States Schipperke Club (USSC) recognizes that purebred Schipperkes may be born in a solid color other than black.

Since the majority of Schipperkes are born with tails, the USSC allows Schipperkes to be shown with or without tails.

It is our goal to showcase the best the breed has to offer!
