SV acknowledges SAR (RH2 B) K9's for Koerung

Have you read the changes yet. This is fantastic. As of this year a SAR K9 with the RH2 B is eligible to get gekoered (breed surveyed).

So that means that the IPO1, HGH or the RH2 B can get your dogs surveyed now.

But how are these dogs assessed for fight and defense?
I can understand courage and prey drive coming out of the test.

Sorry, I thought the HGH required the dog to protect its owner. I guess I was mistaken.

Nancy, if a dog gets the RH2 B, I think they are more than worthy to be gekoered.

I was not belittling the significance of the accomplishment just trying to understand as I, mistankingly, though testing with bitework would be necessary.

It would be nice if there were ways to koer true working dual purpose police dogs without asking them to go through a dogsport.

Well in order to Koer you have to DO the Koerung, which is bitework. Granted it's been very watered down now but hypothetically speaking, even with HGH or RH titles the dog still has to show protection during the test. There is an attack on the handler and a long bite. Both have drives though from what I can tell no one is actually hitting the dogs anymore (they should be) and both require an out. When you do a Koerung first you do bitework, then the judge evaluates conformation, then you hand over your paperwork (pedigree, titles, hip/elbow ratings). You don't just get the KKL for turning in the paperwork; like Sandra said the RH2 makes the dog "eligible" for Koer.

Thanks. That is the clarification I was looking for.

Nancy, I've tried to find some videos for you of what it looks like and what the dogs have to do. Most of the examples are showlines and poor examples but it's all I could find.


this is not a good example but that's how it can go (doesn't mean it's always like that) but some dogs have just enough training to get through it.
