Congratulations! That's a super accomplishment.
Congratulations. That is awesome.Yesterday my dog earned his IGP 1 with high tracking (95). Placed 3rd overall (so got a piece of the podium).
A wheel came off in obedience in a most surprising way (never did THAT before and I know why), but we passed that phase.
The best thing was the judge recognizing and loving the bond and relationship I have with my dog as well as the overall quality and clarity of the dog himself.
Thanks!Congratulations. That is awesome.
Thanks for all your posts. I learn a lot from them as you are probably the most knowledgeable on this site. Not saying I agree with everything you say but it is obvious you have a good grasp on things. Take care and all the best in the future.

With good training corrections are rare. I left a club where there was too much negative pressure (on handlers too!).Congrats @3GSD4IPO.
So you mean all those corrections didn't destroy your relationship and bond lol.
I think a lot people don't realize that IPO is not just a sport but a way to help evaluate the genetics of the dog, which was the original intention.
Sounds like you have a nice pup.
