What is IPO / Schutzhund Training
Schutzhund (now known as IPO) is German for Protection Dog! This dog sport derived from Germany and designed to evaluate a dog's character rather than simply evaluating the dogs appearance for breeding. Many breeds train for the IPO titles but the tests are demanding on the dog's ability to work under stress.
Before a dog can compete in IPO, it must pass a BH temperament test. This tests the dog's basic obedience and sureness around strange people, dogs, traffic and loud noises. A dog that exhibits excessive fear, distractibility or aggression will not pass the BH and thus cannot attempt the IPO titles.
There are three IPO titles - IPO I, IPO II, IPO III and each title consists of three phases: obedience, tracking and protection.
