Originally, these dogs were herding dogs , but the industrialization of Germany encouraged breeders to promote the use of their dogs as police abd military dogs. The Verein fur Deutsche Schaferhunde (SV, the parent club, became concerned this would lead to careless breeding and undesirable traits such as mental instability, so it developed the Schutzhund test.\u0026nbsp;\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSince then, most other countries and working dog organisations have adopted Schutzhund (now known as IGP) as a sport and a test of working performance in dogs. International rules have been established, and they are administered by the Verin fur Deutsche Hundesport (VDH).\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp style=\u0022text-align: center;\u0022\u003e\u003cem\u003eIGP concentrates on three parts.

As a working trial, IGP measures the dogs mental stability, endurance, structural efficiencies, ability to scent, willingness to work, courage and trainability,\u0026nbsp;\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThis working dog sport offers an opportunity for dog owners to train their dog and compete with each other for recognition of both the handlers ability to train and the dogs ability to perform as required. It is a sport enjoyed by persons of varied professions, who join togetehr in a camaraderie born of their common interest in working with their dogs. Persons of all ages and conditions of life - even those with significent disabilities - enjoy IGP as a sport. Often, it is a family sport.\u0026nbsp;\u003cbr\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eBAGSD-IGP was formed in 2007 in order to comply with WUSV regulations to encourage the development of the German Shepherd Dog as a true \u0027Working Dog\u0027.\u003cbr\u003eBAGSD-IGP is WUSV and Kennel Club Registered\u003cbr\u003e \u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp style=\u0022text-align: center;\u0022\u003ePlease visit\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp style=\u0022text-align: center;\u0022\u003e\u003ca href=\u0022https://www.bagsdipo.co.uk/index.php\u0022\u003eBAGSD IPO/IGP\u003c/a\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp style=\u0022text-align: center;\u0022\u003efor more information\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eThe Value to the Breed\u0026nbsp;\u003c/strong\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAny registered German Shepherd that has earned an IGP title has demonstrated sufficient ability as a working dog to qualify for breed evaluation. The breed evaluation is a very detailed examination of the dogs structure, temperment and pedigree and require both a certification of good back, hip and\u0026nbsp;elbow joints and sufficient performance on an endurance test (the IGP AD). Dogs that do well in the breed evaluation receive a Koerklasse 1 or a Koerklasse 2. This is a recommendation and evaluation by a trained and recognized expert judge as the worthiness of the dog for breeding. By thus screening dogs in order to select the suitable specimens for breeding, IGP helps maintain the quality of the breed at a very high level.\u0026nbsp;\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThus, there is a very high level of assurance that puppies born to IGP dams and sired by IGP dogs are more likely to be of reliable temperament, high intelligence, steady nerves, extreme endurance, great strength and sound structures.\u0026nbsp;\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003ctable class=\u0022table table-bordered\u0022\u003e\u003ctbody\u003e\u003ctr\u003e\u003ctd\u003e\u003cp style=\u0022max-width: 263px;\u0022\u003e\u003cimg src=\u0022https://www.bagsd.net/Client/Images/Cms/rich_oscar.jpg\u0022 data-image=\u00221\u0022 width=\u0022263\u0022 height=\u0022175\u0022 style=\u0022width: 263px; max-width: 263px; height: 175px;\u0022\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\u003c/td\u003e\u003ctd\u003e\u003cp style=\u0022max-width: 258px;\u0022\u003e\u003cimg src=\u0022https://www.bagsd.net/Client/Images/Cms/tracking.jpg\u0022 data-image=\u00221\u0022 width=\u0022258\u0022 height=\u0022172\u0022 style=\u0022width: 258px; max-width: 258px; height: 172px;\u0022\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\u003c/td\u003e\u003ctd\u003e\u003cp style=\u0022max-width: 257px;\u0022\u003e\u003cimg src=\u0022https://www.bagsd.net/Client/Images/Cms/obedience.jpg\u0022 data-image=\u00221\u0022 width=\u0022257\u0022 height=\u0022171\u0022 style=\u0022width: 257px; max-width: 257px; height: 171px;\u0022\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\u003c/td\u003e\u003ctd\u003e\u003cp style=\u0022max-width: 255px;\u0022\u003e\u003cimg src=\u0022https://www.bagsd.net/Client/Images/Cms/protection.jpg\u0022 data-image=\u00221\u0022 width=\u0022255\u0022 height=\u0022170\u0022 style=\u0022width: 255px; max-width: 255px; height: 170px;\u0022\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\u003c/td\u003e\u003c/tr\u003e\u003c/tbody\u003e\u003c/table\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003c/p\u003e","ContentConfig":{"Caption":null,"Icon":null,"IconColour":null,"CaptionColour":null,"UnderlineColour":null,"TextColour":null,"FontSize":null,"LineHeight":null,"BottomMargin":0,"PaddingLeft":"10px","PaddingTop":"10px","PaddingRight":"10px","PaddingBottom":"10px","PhoneVisible":true,"TabletVisible":true,"DesktopVisible":true},"ComponentCode":null,"ComponentError":null,"BottomMargin":0,"PaddingLeft":"10px","PaddingTop":"10px","PaddingRight":"10px","PaddingBottom":"10px","ResponsiveClasses":"","Background":{"Colour":null,"ImageURL":null,"Filter":null,"IsParallax":false,"Image":"","Tint":""},"ImageConfig":{"ImageURL":null,"ObjectFit":"contain","ImageHeight":null,"FrameStyle":null,"BorderRadius":null,"AltText":null,"LinkURL":null,"BottomMargin":0,"PaddingLeft":"10px","PaddingTop":"10px","PaddingRight":"10px","PaddingBottom":"10px","PhoneVisible":true,"TabletVisible":true,"DesktopVisible":true}}]}],"ColumnSpacing":0,"BottomMargin":0,"TopPadding":0,"IsFullWidth":false,"IsBackgroundFullWidth":false,"Background":{"Colour":null,"ImageURL":null,"Filter":null,"IsParallax":false,"Image":"","Tint":""}}],"PageURL":"https://www.bagsd.net/Cms/Spaces/DEFAULT/IGP?version=7","AllVersions":[],"Comments":[],"UpdatedComments":[],"Spaces":[],"IsWatching":false,"LastViewTime":null,"CanEdit":false,"CanPublish":false,"CanCopy":false,"CanCreateTemplate":false,"CanComment":false,"CanReadComments":false,"CanModerateComments":false,"CanLike":false,"CanWatch":false}
