IPO / Schutzhund is a sport that was developed specifically to maintain the breed standard of the German Shepherd Dog. This measures the dog’s proficiency in 3 areas; obedience, tracking, and protection which are all key traits and skill-sets that German Shepherds should instill before the breeding ever takes place.
TITLES & BREED SURVEYS
Red Rock K9 only breeds only from proven working adults that have been breed surveyed or titled. A Breed Survey is a measure of standard and suitability for future breeding. This certification is evaluated by an expert judge verifying the correct physical appearance, performance movement, and sound temperament. The breed survey is the ultimate stamp of approval and used as part of as selection process when considering if a German Shepherd is suitable to breed.
Arguably, in equal importance, the working Schutzhund title (IGP / IPO) or equal Czech counterpart the ZVV title measures the dogs functionality and proficiency of training in 3 main areas: obedience, tracking, and protection. These test come in varying levels which challenges both the trainer and dog. As a prerequisite to these tests the dog must once again display sound temperament and stringent demonstration of restrain and control.
Schutuzhund originated in the early 1900’s as a sport to measure a dog in these 3 areas. These sport titles became an important step and measurement of aptitude to determine a dog’s breeding suitability.
Working sport titles can take hundreds if not thousands of hours of training. We see titles and the breeding of the German Shepherd as synonymous. A breeding program that does not include working tiles is doing a huge disservice to the breed.
Red Rock K9 has aligned itself with some of the top breeding kennels in Czech Republic. Our breeding program strongly relies on these partnerships that have their own established breeding programs and extensive histories of pedigrees and has continuously bred for specific wanted traits, qualities, and standard form. Our main partnerships both have 30-50 years of history behind their breeding program.
