What We Do
We are a NON-PROFIT group of dedicated Working Dog enthusiasts, who train in dog obedience, tracking, and protection as a hobby. Our club is registered as non-profit, and part of the national club, the German Shepherd Schutzhund Club of Canada.
CANADIAN KENNEL CLUB, CKC Tracking:
Canadian Kennel Club tracking is performed under CKC rules and consists of four titles, the TD (tracking dog), the TDX (tracking dog excellent), UTD (urban tracking dog), and the UTDX (urban tracking dog excellent). Our club welcomes all breeds to participate in Tracking ONLY.
GERMAN SHEPHERD SCHUTZHUND CLUB OF CANADA, GSSCC IGP/Schutzhund Sport:
"IGP, or International Gebrauchshund Prufung = International Working / Practical Dog Test, is a three-part sport which includes Tracking, Obedience and Protection phases – the dog must pass all three phases in the trial. To succeed in the protection aspect of the sport, the successful IPO candidate must possess a basic level of instinctual drives, solid nerves, desire, and willingness to perform the work with their handler. There are three levels/titles, IGP1, IGP2, and IGP3. All IGP trials are held under GSSCC rules, (German Shepherd Schutzhund Club of Canada)".
