Congratulations to Fabian Robinson (handler) and Graubear’s Boker (our Bear!) for winning the the FCI-IPO World Championship of 2014!!
IPO has three major components of testing–Tracking, Obedience, Protection (people may think this sounds similar to Schutzhund trials, and those now follow IPO regulations and are considered the same thing in most circles), and the sum of all points in the triad sets your ranking. As you can see by the three-way heat one point below our pair, it’s an INTENSE competition!
