World Championships WUSV 2015 Lahti, Finland


So I spent the summer competing with Ysis (my German Shepherd) at 2 world championships; Switzerland and Lahti, Finland for the sport of IPO.

It was definitely one of the most memorable experiences to compete with the best trainers and best dogs in the world.

IPO is a discipline of 3 phases: tracking (searching foot steps for articles), obedience (pictured) and protection (pictured).

We placed 57th out of 109 dogs, with a score Top 11 in obedience.
