DobbyDad And IPO is easier to spell and type than schutshund.

lhczth That is definitely the politically correct reason given.

robk Internationale Prufungs Ordnung or translated to International trial Rules. As middleofnowhere said, the way I understood it, schutzhund changed to IPO so that all countries were using the same rules. Too me, it makes sense because IPO is an internationally competitive sport.

volcano I could google it, but so we all know- what does IPO stand for?

middleofnowhere Reason was, as I understand it, to create uniformity. (Simplifying stuff for the humans involved).

lhczth There used to be both IPO and SchH. Then some countries had VPG to hopefully pacify the fear mongers and green party (ARists). In 2012 all countries agreed to follow one set of rules and SchH was no more.

Chris Wild As of 2012, everything is IPO. This was an international rule change. SchH no longer exists under that old name.

HarleyTheGSD I've also been thinking about this.
I always thought they were the same...maybe not? I'm very interested to see what replies you get.
