The IFR World Championship of IGP and IFH, from Monday 16th October to Saturday 21st in JindřichůvHradec is over.
A quick look back at the past few days comes to an excellent conclusion. I am pleased to describe the organization of the IFR World Championship as superb. The organizational team, led by Director Karel Frank, did an outstanding job. A magnifying glass would probably have to be used to find problems and potential for improvement. Hence, a big THANK YOU and a big APPLAUSE to the organization.
It should be mentioned as very positive that all participants found fair conditions, both on the track and in the stadium. The two protection helpers did an excellent job over the three days. The sleeve was well presented to all dogs.
The gifts for the participants were greatly appreciated by everyone. The trophies for the winners are not only big, but also very beautiful.
My heart beats for IGP and what I've been able to see over the past few days has made my heartbeat faster. The performance level of the B and C demonstrations showed many outstanding works. There have been a lot of positive changes, not just in breeding, but also in training methods in recent years. It takes a good dog, good training methods and a bit of luck to win the world championship. The IFR congratulates the winners and wishes all Rottweiler friends continued successful sport.
I wish everyone a safe journey home/flight home and maybe we'll see each other in Slovakia next year.
On behalf of the IFR Executive Board
