Some of the finest canine athletes in North America will be in Prince Edward Island this summer for the 35th annual Canadian German Shepherd Dog Championships and Sieger Show. The event is being held July 9th - August 2nd, 2015 (schedule) at the Firefighter’s Association in Winsloe, PEI and will attract competitors, judges and spectators from all over Canada, the United States and Europe.
The Championships combine the best of both worlds – the incredible performances of the sport dogs alongside the graceful beauty of the show. The sport dogs have all qualified by obtaining International Working Dog titles, which include tracking, obedience and protection. Many of the world’s service dogs - i.e. police, military, border patrol, search and rescue - come from dogs that have earned the IPO working dog title.
The conformation show is a demonstration of breed type and temperament held up to the internationally recognized breed standard for the German Shepherd Dog.
The National Championships are the final qualifier for Team Canada. The top five eligible handler-dog teams will go on to represent Canada at the World Championships to be held is Lahti, Finland in September.
