About

Schutzhund/IPO

We are dedicated to protecting and preserving the German Shepherd Dog’s working heritage through Schutzhund (“German for protection dog”) training.  Schutzhund is a sport that focuses on developing and evaluating those traits in dogs that makes them more useful and happier companions to their owners.

The purpose of Schutzhund is to demonstrate the dog’s intelligence and utility.  It also measures the dog’s mental stability, endurance, structural efficiencies, ability to scent, willingness to work, courage and trainability. 

This working sport offers an opportunity for dog owners to train their dog and compete with each other for recognition of both the handler’s ability to train, and the dog’s ability to perform as required.  It is a sport enjoyed by persons of varied professions, who join together in camaraderie born of their common interest in working with their dogs.  Persons of all ages and conditions of life, even those with significant disabilities enjoy Schutzhund as a sport.  Often it is a family sport.
