I tought it was a nice idea to put some short terms here, they´re used so much in the dogsworld and makes things easier to understand.

Please add your remarks or tell me when I made a mistake.

PSD: Police Service Dog
PPD: Personal Protection Dog
SAR: Search and Rescue dog
Sch.: Schutzhund, 3 levels
BH/VZH: general training programme, is required before Sch. or IPO
IPO/IWR: international Prufungs ordnung, looks almost the same as sch. these days
KNPV: Koninklijke Nederlandse Politiehonden Vereniging/Royal Dutch Policedog Association
Obj.: object guarding, 1 of the programmes of KNPV
PH1: Politiehond 1/Police dog 1, 1 of the programmes of KNPV
PH2: Politiehond 2/Police dog 2, 1 of the programmes of KNPV

Out: release/let go of object/sleeve/suit Los(sen) (dutch)
Platz: down/af
Heel: fuß, voet, volgen

HIC - this is for the Herding Instinct Certificate
CGC - is for canine good citizen - through the AKC
CD - is companion dog - through the AKC

ASR: American Street Ring
ASR-E: Entry Level title for ASR, then theres ASR1/2/3.
PSA: Protection Sport Association - type of protection sport

Fuss/fuß is the German term for heel
Stay = blieb Bleib
sit = Sitz
Come = heir hier also dutch
No = Nine or Phooey Nein (german),nee (dutch) or foei (dutch)
Leave it = lass es
go out = Voraus
watch= paus auf
attack= fass

Thank you Selena, excellent post. I have often wondered what all those initials meant :oops:

The command translations are good to know too. I don't know the translation for the other languages but here are a few more German terms

Fuss/fuß is the German term for heel
Stay = blieb Bleib
sit = Sitz
Come = hier also dutch
No = Nine or Phooey Nein (german) or foei (dutch)
Leave it = lass es
go out = Voraus
watch= paus auf
attack= fass

I don´t know if they are typo´s but I changed it in regular german :wink:

May I just say that "hier" German is English "here".

I use "come" when I want him to come to me with his kong or whatever but not deliver a perfect "here".

BH is not required before IPO. German SchH requires BH but IPO is the international version and no BH is required beforehand. Actually, German SchH (now VPG) and IPO are virtually the same but in the long flight, German SchH participants are allowed to hold the dog by the collar and IPO particpants not.

Cheers

apologies are not necessary. Strange that Belgium and Holland require BH and German and Switzerland not, do you know why it isn't required? Is it extra?

In Germany you are required to prove your dog has achieved BH before you can do VPG 1 as this is a national sport.

I can't find anything in the IPO rules which states that you need this requirement.

It's misleading in Switzerland because our BH and VPG, not only being national, have no connection with Germany's BH and VPG and I can start VPG 1 or IPO 1 without any other requirement apart from age.

Seems strange though. You could come here to Switzerland, and do IPO, which will be recognised in Holland, thereby leaving out the BH.

Must do some research to get to the bottom of this.

Depends on the handler, but the fence is usually: hoog or over. The ditch is usually: breed or over.

We use hoog for both the jumps and breed for the ditch. Over we use for the swimming excercise.

Gillian are you also stuck in dreadful Switzerland?
FCI is the one with the rules. Each country is free to deal with its members as it pleases. A German BH I is a totally different trial than the one in Switzerland. For instance no tracking required. But one has to walk in a city like situation. It makes sense when you look at some of the agility dogs in Switzerland.
VGP, competition obedience is not the same either in Switzerland and Germany. I believe VPG III and Ob III are identical. IPO however is always IPO no matter where you live as FCI dictates the rules. Due to Swiss dog laws there seem to be some changes going on (soft stock issue).
Personally I wouldn't want to do a BH I in Switzerland. I have seen far too many dogs not reliable at all and I have no interest in dog fights during a trial.
And then we have Austria among the German speaking countries. No clue how it works over there.

Rachel,

Yes I'm here for the duration but I love it. So many rules, laws, etc. just waiting to be broken!!!!

I think the term Schutzhund that is now known as VPG, is misleading as a title. VPG is a Swiss National Sports and in no way identical with German dog sports. I think they were based on the UK police dog trials originally.

You have to remember that each country has the freedom to name and define its trials as it wishes.

VPG 3 (no longer III since a few years) is not identical with Obedience 3. Obedience is not part of our working trials and comes under the section with Agility, Mobility, etc. It should belong to Working Trials, as I was told but no big deal. Dioesn't really *** a dog out.

However, we do have Mondioring and 2 Weltmeister\\:D/ \\:D/ although there is a very good American girl, creeping up on them and sure has my backing for next year as well !!!!

Rachel, why dog fights in BH (Swiss)?? This can happen in any trial - haven't seen it happen though!

BH was a trial for young dogs and was extended to include BH 2 and then BH 3 for trainers who did not wish to do bitework. Don't think that the BH 3 is something to be achieved quickly because it isn't. The tracking part is far superior to IPO 3 with various types of corners from open to closed.
