Many clubs are still interested in the organization of a seminar for IPO-helpers. As already mentioned in the years before the IPO and Schutzhund program are indeed dogsport-programs but more than this, they are meant to recognize, promote and preserve the characteristics of the working dog and can therefore be an important tool in breed selection.Moreover, these programs allow us to preserve and demonstrate the character-traits of the working dog in a perfect socially acceptable manner. A correct, multi-purposed and modern education for IPO-helpers is however a necessity and can and should take into account the specific characteristics of the Rottweiler.The IFR has therefore decided to help and promote the dog sport for the Rottweiler-amateur byagain organizing a seminar for IPO-helpers.The seminar already took place six times, each time under the direction of Mr. J. Bungarten, a name know to us all and a firm guarantee for more than just an interesting event but for aninstructive, constructive and stimulating education.
The seminar 2014 will take place from Friday, May 23 (arrival date) – Sunday May 25 near the German city of Cologne (Köln), more precisely: Berrenratherstrasse 92, 50354 Hürth-Stotzheim.The seminar will be conducted by Mr. Bungart. There will be no fee for the participation to the seminar. We await this confirmation and the names, addresses, etc. .. of the participants by 30 March 2014.
The necessary accommodation for the seminar (training-field and dogs) will be provided forand lodging at low prices is available in nearby hotels (example hotel “Ibis” and others:http://www.accorhotels.com/de/hotel-2167-ibis-koeln-west-frechen/index.shtml ) Meals (breakfast and lunch) will also be provided at low cost at the training field!
