I did not see an actual poll, but I DO NOT SUPPORT UScA's policy on this, but that's not surprising since I don't support the JA either. They can do whatever they want - as I don't care for the organization, but this is a poll and I never have problems giving my opinionI am curious how much support, from people who are in the schutzhund sport, of the UScA policy to not accept scorebooks or titles issued from the GSDCA-WDA? If you do or do not support, what is your rationale as to how your view benefits to the sport and potential solutions?
I don't think we can actually blame UScA on this one alone as from my understanding NONE of the AWDF affiliated clubs will accept scorebooks or titles from the GSDCA-WDA because they are not a member of the AWDF. I asked this specifically of the AWMA and was told that because the GSDCA-WDA is not a member club of the AWDF - the scores would not be accepted. Funny though - Mike West usta be a UScA judge and they accepted his judging abilities when he was a part of the UScA...his abilities must have changed just because he went over to WDA#-oI would think that if the judge at a WDA trial is an SV Judge then all the organization would then have to accept the score/title/judge - but who knows.
GSDCA-WDA will accept UScA, AWDF etc scorebooks and will honor other organizations judges scores AND you don't get slammed with extra fees because you are not a member of GSDCA-WDA.
I am a member of DVG, AWMA and GSDCA-WDA - so I have my Malinois' covered for trialing and my GSD UScA can do whatever........
