I'm curious and new. The club I'm interested in briefly touched on the topic while I was there and they mentioned they think USCA will be allowed back into AWDF because of an issue with judge training/qualifications (?) And that USCA was trying to be a breed club when it was originally a sport club (?) Regardless the club is registered with USCA and DVG and they said it doesn't matter which I choose to join under.
The whole conversation confused me since it seems like club politics and I'm not one for politics on top of being new to IPO/IPG. Hoping someone can dumb down the issue and what they think will happen.
this is sort of backwards.....USCA was originally established to promote/follow the SV standard of breeding for the German Shepherd Dog.....through the years, the whole concept of training and titles is to ascertain the breedworthiness of the individual has been shunted aside and the training is now a competitive sport....if a title can be made on a dog, no matter how skewed or twisted or mickey moused the test, people think it equals breedworthiness....
Politics has always been a cloud over the sport and the organization. ALWAYS. That being said, USCA still has the most clubs, the most trials and is generally recognized as the organization with the most opportunity.
