Schutzhund vs IPO

What exactly are the differences. From the little I've seen they look very similar.

Can you explain this please? The club I am going to start training with does both Schutzhund and IPO training (per their description). They say some dogs do both, some only do one or the other.

I'm curious about this also. I just saw something that said IPO is what used to be called Schutzhund...however, I thought there were two separate groups, two separate "tests", etc...

Same thing now - FCI sets international guidelines and now everyone doing "schutzhund" sport conform under the same set of rules. Schutzhund is no longer used officially - it is all IPO now. No such thing as Schh or SchH titles anymore except the dogs that were titled from before the rule change

There is no difference anymore, you can't get SchH titles.

You can't train in one or the other anymore. It's the same thing.

OK I understand now. I guess it makes sense... I actually wondered recently why I was seeing a lot fewer schutzhund titles and a lot more IPO titles in younger pedigrees.

When did this change take place? I start training Tuesday, I'll ask her about it then.
