IFR World Championship Tracking Dog FCI FH I September 17-18 2019

All Delegates were invited to vote on the proposal to organize an IFR World Championship FH I or II (tracking dog).    The proposal was supported by the IFR board as it will again promote and preserve the Rottweiler as a utility breed.    

It is my pleasure to announce that a majority of Member Clubs have accepted the proposal !

 

Poll : do IFR Memberclubs intend to follow the Norwegian initiative to measure all heads.

The following poll is meant for IFR Delegates only.    It is meant to collect information about the Memberclub's intention and/or willingness to consider asking the judges at their breed special shows to measure the dog's heads, their opinion on the usefullness and/or necessity of such measurements and the willingness / ability to share existing information.

Finland to follow the Norwegian example

We just received formal confirmation by the Delegate of the Finnish Rottweilerclub  that the head (and its ratio's) of all Rottweilers entered for her breed special shows will be measured, starting this year.    We are sure others will follow.     

The IFR will send a "poll" to all Delegates, asking for the willingness and/or intention of their respective clubs to consider following the example.     

The Rottweiler head ... a follow up.

Dear Rottweiler Friends,

This morning, I received an email by several IFR-Member clubs asking to take a position on the initiative of the Norwegian club to measure the heads of all Rottweilers that participate their breed special shows.

All Delegates have received the e-mail by the Norwegian Rottweiler club with the results of this measuring.  

These findings are worrying, even frightening because they show that all dogs had a too short muzzle in proportion to the length of the head !   All of them, with no exception …!   

IFR-titles - IFR World Show

As we were contacted (not for the first time) concerning existing IFR-titles and the confusion that was created in the past because of the use of not existing and therefore unrecognized titles (such as Vice World Winner, Best Breeder or Best Reproducer or Best progeny, etc. …), we emphasize that the IFR indeed only recognizes the titles : “IFR World Winner” and “IFR World Youth Winner”, none else.

To avoid all misunderstanding, our Friends of the Argentine Rottweilerclub were requested to make sure that no other titles are announced on their website and/or used in the organization and the course of the event.
