IPO CHAMPIONSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT
We are excited to announce that our club, Hell’s Kitchen Schutzhund Club is hosting the 2018 AWDF Championship here in Northern California. Official dates of the event will be May 18-20.
Vacaville, CA is a great area, just an hour from San Francisco International Airport to the west and an hour from Sacramento Airport to the east.
Our club looks forward to putting on a top-notch event filled with an awesome draw night with catered food plus cash bar, big raffle prizes, an official event sponsor and much more! For those local and traveling, we have secured a clean, affordable dog friendly host hotel, practice tracking, and two large practice fields with full blinds and jumps. All within 15 minutes of each other.
Official tracking for the event will most likely be alfalfa, but could potentially change. We will keep everyone informed.
Official stadium is going to be at a local high school field with food concessions available each day.
Please see our Facebook page: Hell’s Kitchen Schutzhund Club for more details coming in the weeks to follow. There will be an event page made plus updated website link where competitor info and entries will be posted. As soon as judges are selected, we will announce them. Very soon we will announce the call for top national level helpers who want to be a part of this excellent event. Stay tuned!!
2017 USRC National IPO Championship
The 2017 USRC National IPO Championship is in the books and what an amazing event it was! I have been to several championships and this event was one of the most fun events I've ever been to. The host club BARK spared no detail to make sure competitors were taken care of and treated to a fair, high caliber event. The quality of dogs in this event was incredible! These dogs gave some spectacular routines but unfortunately some lost some costly exercises so the scores don't fully reflect how nice the competition was. We are going to work on a video highlight reel as soon as I receive the footage. I took over 800+ photos of the dogs that I will get posted in the next few days but here is our new 2017 USRC National IPO Champion, Anung un Rama "Hellboy" van het Bos with Handler/Owner/Trainer Lauren Louise Waters. Hellboy turned out an amazing 280 point performance, including a 97 V Protection with taking down the back half helper on the courage test! In 2nd place was Renee Lancaster and Chiron vom Rottberg who also showed a spectacular 96 V Protection Routine! In 3rd place was Don Brooks and Wu-Tang's Axel with a solid 85-80-89! Thank you Bay Area Rottweiler Klub for hosting such a great event and thank you everyone for supporting the USRC!
