IPO training with standardpoodle Willi


IPO is a sport that focuses on developing and evaluating traits in dogs that make them more useful and stable companions to their owners. The purpose of IPO is to demonstrate the dog's intelligence and utility. As a working trial, IPO measures the dog’s mental stability, endurance, structural efficiencies, ability to scent, willingness to work, courage and trainability.

Abraxas White Antony - a white standard male - owned by Angela Unger in Germany shows that this is certainly a subject for poodles. Of course it is - poodles can do anything. The text on the pages are Angela´s own words in German, but I am sure that everybody understands.

Thanks so much to Angela for sharing these wonderful pictures of her clever boy.
