Dear members

Today we want to inform you about the current events of the WDSF.

The changes of the statutes decided by the general meeting will be confirmed by the responsible court before the end of this year and will be valid from 01.01.2019.

This means, for example, that from 01.01.2019 sports clubs can also become members.

The Sports Commission can also start work. Among other things, the implementation rules for the organisation of the World Championships will be revised here. The biggest changes will probably come in the area of access to the World Championships and the qualification mode.

One of our biggest goals is to promote the Dutch Shepherd in his versatility. We were able to take the first steps towards obtaining the FCI’s utility dog designation. We are in close contact with the Dutch mother federation NHC and the VVHH and have applied to the Raad van Beheer to apply for this attribute to the FCI. Here again many thanks to all who support us here.

The organisation of the World Championship IGP in the USA is in full swing. The event homepage will go online soon. Judges and helpers have been named. At the moment the examination by the board of the WDSF is still running. Contact was made to Canviva/workingdog for film marketing.

This will definitely be another top class event!

The Worldcups Mondioring, Agility and Obedience will take place in the first half of the year in Europe. The organization is running at full speed. As soon as the exact venues and dates are known, we will publish them.

For Agility and Obedience we have asked the FCI if it would be possible to convert this into a world championship with a wildcard to the respective FCI world championships. Here the answer is still pending. As soon as we have news, we will inform you.

We hope to have brought you so on the newest conditions of the procedures. We would like to thank you for your support and wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
