Bad news from Sweden!

The Swedish Working Dog Association has decided that only their own breeds may enter protection trials. This includes Swedish Protection, IPO and Schutzhund.

So in two weeks all other breeds are banned, including Airedales!

The only breeds allowed to participate will be: GSD, Malinois+4 Belgian shepherd breeds, Boxer, Gigant Schnauzer, Hovawart, Collie. These are the "official" working dog breeds in Sweden and their breeding programmes are controlled by the working dog association...

Airedales belong to the Terrier Club and are thus not classified as a working breed.

THIS SUCKS GUYS!!!!! Especially when you're used to kicking butt at the trials!
