In the teamcompetition, the first place went to Germany, the second to Sweden, the third to the Netherlands.
Individual results : World Champion 2017 = Ricard Adams with Finn vom Erpenstein (the Netherlands). The second place was for Cristiano Cavallo with Cash (Italy) and the third place for Dmitry Dudukin with Cid vom Rottberg.
At a time that we are convinced that it has been long proven that there is no such thing as a "dangerous canine breed", again initiatives for Breed Specfic Legislation (BSL) were announced in Spain (Madrid) and in Belgium (Wallonia). The Spanish (CRE) and Belgian (BRK) IFR-Memberclubs have said to fight those proposals. The IFR-Board will therefore not intervene directly with the authorities that have announced those legislative initiatives but has offered its help to the Memberclubs concerned as I am sure that all other Memberclubs will do too. Will be followed up upon.
Dear Rottweiler Friends,
I am convinced that the Delegate of your Rottweilerclub who attended the IFR-Meetings dd. 04 and 05.05.2017 in Serbia has already reported to you about these meetings, their content and especially their importance. I dare indeed state that the Meeting of Delegates dd. 05.05.2017 2017, preceded by the preparatory Meeting of Breed Wardens, was extremely important and fruitful.
UPDATE after the Meeting of Delegates dd. 05.05.2017.
The Meeting of Delegates changed the Constitution. Although this was already decided upon in 2015, there can now be no misunderstandings about the fact that, with the exeption of Germany, more than one club per country can apply for IFR-Membership.
The regulations on the organization of the World Championship were updated.
The regulations on the organization of the World Show were updated.
All Member Clubs must issue breeding regulations that include a minimum (18 months) and maximum (9 years) age for all breeding dogs.
