A Three Phase Dog Sport 
Demonstration of how precisely the K-9 is trained to work

formerly known in the USA as Schutzhund

Three canine disciplines developed in Germany; originally developed to test the German Shepherd dog's working temperament and ability. Tracking (scent detection), Obedience, and Protection make up three phases that have become known as the sport of Schutzhund (IPO).

Although the original GSD breed test evolved and has become a growing dog sport among many working dog enthusiasts, it still remains a useful tool in making working dog breeding decisions. Dogs are showcased performing during routine situations, while handlers enjoy the challenge of showing control of the dog's working drives.

Interest in the sport is world wide and ranges anywhere from obtaining K-9 working titles through club trials on up to participation in Regional, National and World Championships. Although some breeds are better suited than others for the sport, any dog is eligible to compete. The sport is addictive and has become highly competitive, but still remains a hobby that handlers of all levels, physical abilities and ages continue to enjoy. Local Schutzhund clubs are found throughout the United States and the World.
