Why "IPO" in America?

Why are german shepherd dogs earning IPO titles in America and not Sch anymore?

If they're the same thing, what's the point in changing the name?

I'm just curious, if no one wants to answer, can someone just post a link with answers?

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

That is definitely the politically correct reason given.
