Default Ipo?

Just a curiosity since I'm not ever planning on doing bitework but when did Schutzhund get changed to IPO? What does IPO stand for? Why the change?

It was changed this year and it stands for some other german words I don't know how to say but basically means people are a bunch of pussies and had to bow to pressures because schutzhund translates to "protection dog" and we just couldn't be training dogs that have anything to do with bitework.

Apparently IPO = Internationale Prüfungsordnung which translated to International Working Tests.

At least that's what my net search said when I first saw the term a few weeks ago and looked lol. RTH's explanations sounds more practical though

That's weird. What's the beef with 'protection dogs'? Just liability stuff?

because biting dogs are scary and dangerous and those who understand the least get to make the most rules. it's a pervasive sickness that is finding it's way into most of society unfortunately.

Ridiculous.

Is it a global change? I'm pretty sure most people in the US are unaware of what schutzhund is let alone what the word means.

Is retroactive? If a dog earned a SCHH3, are they now IPO3?

It is not retroactive.
A dog with a SchH3 still has a SchH3. But no new SchH3s will be earned, they will all be IPO3s.

It's not just a US change, but I'm not sure who all it affects. I'd imagine it has something to do with the FCI and SV and being the recognized breed club of certain countries

Politics. Biting dogs shouldn't admit they bite. Duh.

Cause..you know...dogs trained in bitework are dangerous and a liability etc. Silly Politics get in the way of things.

They changed some rules that IMHO make it easier. LoLa is almost ready for a BH..then the rule changes cane out and she could pass it now. We were working on the out of motion exercises. Its ridiculous the new changes.

Sad to see the sport caving to the dog coddling mongers.
