The Deutsche Doggen Club 1888 e.V. (DDC) is subdivided into 12 sections, which are called provincial groups. These have been named by the location:
LG Baden Württemberg, LG Bayern, LG Berlin - Brandenburg, LG Hessen / Hessen Nassau, LG Niedersachsen/ Bremen, LG Nord, LG Pfalz / Saar, LG Rheinland, LG Sachsen, LG Sachsen - Anhalt, LG Thüringen and LG Westfalen.
The Provincial Groups are formed (or dissolved) by resolution of the General Council and are set within their limits. If a member wishes to change to another provincial group, a written application must be submitted to the host provincial group and the sending group must be informed. The treasurer shall be informed in writing of this change by the member and the receiving group. Members living abroad do not belong to a provioncial group. However, you can join a provincial group. In this case please inform the treasurer.
