Very simple overview of the significant changes: 1. BH- the heeling pattern will be slightly shorter but will still include on and off leash heeling. IGP levels of track will have 3 articles, each worth 7 points for a total of 21 points for articles. In all Obedience the distance the handler will throw the dumbbell is more clearly defined as approximately 10 meters, the height of the hurtle and wall remain the same.
The jump will have to have a top board that allows it to pivot if touched and then return to its starting position. The minimum distance from the jump or wall is defined as 4 meters no longer 5 paces.
The scoring for the send-out exercise scoring is more clearly defined. The IGP Obedience will change slightly in the IGP1 to exclude the retrieve over the wall and instead have a recall over the wall without the retrieve. In both IGP there are no significant changes proposed. There are some changes in all levels most significantly in the IGP1. The IGP1 will no longer require a blind search of the 5 blind, the dog will instead be sent directly into the 6 blind find blind.
The handler will be allowed in IGP1 to leash the dog during pickup and transport exercises. Additional sporting titles are slightly changed or added, examples are the IPO V no longer has protection it will only be tracking and obedience, countries will be allowed to offer FPr TR , UPr OB , BgH obedience with additional exercises like retrieves, send out etc , APR obedience and protection , and a ZTP for organizations using this as a breed test.
Each year they water down IPO more and more Think Czech republic and maybe Slovak are exeption, in Czech there is tons of young people starting in dogsport all the time, there are junior camps, and junior competitions and even junior championships.

The protection has no blind search anymore. Have I heard this right or is it just rumor? The following appeared on Facebook recently.

Good post Gustav. Since the early 70's, when I started, things have sure changed. Some good, most not so good. With the large market of China opening up people see a gold mine of sales for both SL and so called WL. Biggest problem I see lately are dogs unable to cap their drives and OB stimulating techniques than makes dogs go nuts.
IPO (Utility & Tracking Dogs)
Thanks for posting the rule changes. I don't like the idea of watering down the sport but I always thought that the difference between the IPO titles for obedience was not enough, the retrieves specifically. It makes up such a large part of the obedience routine but the only real difference is the dumbbell weight on the flat retrieve, kind of a pointless difference in my opinion.
Not sure how accurate this is but I heard someone say the rules used to be for the 1 was retrieve over the flat, for the 2 they add retrieve over the jump, then the 3 added a retrieve over the a frame. I've been seeing and hearing of so many dogs injuring themselves on the jumps and A frame from repeating the exercise too many times to try and attain perfection. I think they should still have those exercises but not all 3 for the IPO1. When I started, they had the retrieve on the flat and the jump only for the one, but we had to do both on and off lead heeling.
I was soooooo happy when the on lead heeling was removed. With these new rules, removing the retrieve over the wall and making it a recall makes no sense, but I doubt people with sense came up with these rules. FCI now seems to have total control over the rules and they want to be all inclusive. They could care less about breeding. Thanks for all of the information, it would be interesting to see what the rules were for the first Schutzhund trial.
