The IFR Board received the question if a castrated dog can participate the IFR World Championship IPO III ABC. The current regulations do not state on this. After consideration, the Board decided to adopt the regulation (art. 6.8) of the FCI on the organization of the World Championship for all breeds :
Castrated bitches and male dogs can be admitted if proof of original intactness is furnished by way of a veterinary certificate.
In the teamcompetition, the first place went to Germany, the second to Sweden, the third to the Netherlands.
Individual results : World Champion 2017 = Ricard Adams with Finn vom Erpenstein (the Netherlands). The second place was for Cristiano Cavallo with Cash (Italy) and the third place for Dmitry Dudukin with Cid vom Rottberg.
