Regulations IFR World Championship Tracking Dogs

It is with pleasure that we can now announce that the IFR decided to organize not only an annual World Championship IPO III but also an annual World Championship for Tracking Dogs and that its Regulations are approved.

This is again a major decision and step towards for the preservation of the original characteristics of the Rottweiler as a utility breed.

Our friends from Denmark may start their preparations for the first competition in 2019 and will find the Board at the ready for all wanted assistance and cooperation.   

Please communicate this to all your Club Members.  We look forward to meet the Rottweiler in large numbers on the tracking field !
