Unfounded rumours : the IFR World Championships are NOT cancelled.

Dear Rottweiler Friends,

It seems that the recent cancellation of the FCI IGP World Championship 2021 is causing questions, even unfounded rumours.

We can of course not guarantee that the pandemic will not spoil also our event, but at this moment the IFR World Championships IGP and IFH 2021 are NOT cancelled nor is there any indication that we must consider such decision.     To the contrary, it seems that the pandemic is slowly under control and that measures, incl. restrictions on traveling, are everywhere being lifted.    Our friends in Hungary confirm that they are doing their utmost best to organize the event as successfully as possible

To avoid a further spread of unfounded rumours, I would be thankful should you forward this message to the people who are responsible for the selection of your teams.     

All Delegates will be promptly brought up to date should there be new information that might influence the above.  It might however be helpful should all Delegates keep us also up to date about the situation in their country and possible restrictions for their participation to our IFR World Championships.

With friendly greetings,

D. Vandecasteele

IFR-President.

IFR World Championship IGP and IFH 2021 - Hungary - new information

Dear Rottweiler Friends,

Our friends from Hungary confirm that they will do everything in their power to organize and make a success of the IFR World IGP III and IFH World Championships !!   Let's hope COVID-19 won't be a game breaker but will by then be history or at least sufficient under control to allow for a great international event !!

At my request, we received the following first information.  Please forward it to the Board of your national Rottweiler Club and in particular to the Team Captain of your national team :

Pending new legislation in Spain - no longer BSL !

Dear Rottweiler Friends,

Only months ago, the Rottweiler world was shaken up by publications about the fact that in Galicia, the Rottweiler could only be shown with a muzzle.

The Spanish legislation is indeed breed specific (BSL), qualifies the Rottweiler to be one of 13 "dangerous breeds" (sic) and the Galician police was enforcing this legislation at a dog show.

Today, I learn that the Spanish legislator will issue a new legislation that will no longer be breed specific, or in other words that will no longer be based on the breed of a dog to declare it to be dangerous or not but will be based on the behaviour of the individual dog.
