Shots are fired here! Even though the protection of the four-legged K9s is always and everywhere taken into account, one can see (and hear) how important it is for these dogs to have quite special characteristics. Nerve strength, courage, endurance, willingness to work, health, and of course, a lot of fun in teamwork with "their" human. Not everyone possesses these qualities. Therefore, good and precise breeding selection is all the more important, as well as the most modern and advanced training methods to give these dog-human teams every conceivable support. Because the efficiency of this cooperation depends on lives every day. Don't forget to support working dogs, their sports, and their meaningful selection with your signature under ............! Thanks to all these teams worldwide who give their all every day - for our safety!

🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪
Hier wird scharf geschossen! Auch wenn immer und überall an den Schutz der vierbeinigen K9s geachtet wird, so sieht (und hört) man, wie wichtig es ist, dass diese Hunde doch ganz besondere Merkmale mitbringen. Nervenstärke, Mut, Ausdauer, Arbeitswille, Gesundheit und natürlich jede Menge Spaß an Teamwork mit "ihrem" Menschen. Nicht jeder bringt das mit. Umso wichtiger ist eine gute und genaue Zuchtselektion und natürlich modernste und fortschrittlichste Trainingsmethoden um diesen Hund-Mensch Teams jede nur erdenkliche Unterstützung zu geben. Denn von der Effizienz dieser Zusammenarbeit hängen jeden Tag Leben ab. Vergesst nicht, Gebrauchshunde, deren Sportarten und ihre sinnvolle Selektion mit eurer Unterschrift unter ............ zu unterstützen! Danke an alle diese Teams weltweit, die jeden Tag alles geben - für unsere Sicherheit!

K9-dogs play a crucial role in the safety and lives of police officers and soldiers. These highly trained animals are not just companions; they are indispensable partners in detecting dangers, tracking suspects, and providing protection in the most challenging environments. Their loyalty, courage, and skills save lives every day, making them unsung heroes in uniform. Let’s honor and appreciate the invaluable contribution of service dogs to our safety and security.

👌🏻Absolut! Nicht nur das genetische Material für geeignete Hunde, sondern auch das nötige Know- How für die Ausbildung dieser wichtigen Vierbeiner ist großteils dem Gebrauchshundesport in all seinen Facetten zu verdanken. ❤️🐕

K9andSports Austria

Since a few days we are cooperating with an independent registered association K9andSports Austria. K9andSports has been trying to support in the Austrian cause wherever possible. Always keeping in mind that we need to stick to the facts, stay polite - even if its not always easy if you are brave enough to read parts of the Austrian press and posts in Social Media. Our Ambassadors rallied to get us valid and informative statements all of which you can read under "arguments - quotes" as well as in our posts on Facebook and Instagram. Today, K9andSports handed in a statement to the Austrian Parliament covering the reasons why IGP dogsport is a "must" for society, K9 programs as well as the breeding of working dogs. We are keeping our fingers crossed that political decisions will be taken on an informed basis. In the meantime, lets go out there and explain and show the world that our dogs are neither dangerous nor unnaturally aggressive and keep it with our ambassador and SV President Roswitha Dannenberg: "the fact that our sport is being attacked, shows us more than ever that we need to explain and inform!" 

21. Oct. 2023
Ennepetal NRW
Working Together for the Healthy Working Dog

The first event to which K9andSports invited representatives from all working dog breed clubs and sports clubs, the VDH, and representatives from authorities such as customs, police, and the military. Together, we worked to determine the qualities that a working dog should still possess today and how to assess them. The discussions were always conducted on an equal footing, with all parties actively contributing. Dr. Esther Schalke's scientific background added an especially interesting dimension to the conversation. In practice, dogs of different breeds were tested and discussed. A highlight for many was the participation of athletes and representatives from the military in the training exercises. A detailed report will follow soon. We are convinced that this collaboration across boundaries is a new milestone for working dogs.

K9andSports working group and authorities
Event: “for the healthy and operational working dog”

The Cooperation Authorities working group, led by SV performance judges Horst-Dieterträger and Ralf Meins, works hard. The first K9andSports breeding event will take place on October 21, 2023 on a site in Ennepetal. Representatives of the authorities and K9andSports ambassadors will take part. All breed breeding and sports clubs that are part of the VDH were invited. The aim will be to find a consensus on the characteristics that the working dog should have and a possibility of breeding-relevant testing.

K9andSports presents to the German Working Group of K9 program administrators

We founded K9andSports in March of this year.

It is one of our priorities to cooperate and share knowledge with the service dog keeping authorities, including police, customs and military.

On May 16, we had the great honor to introduce our initiative at the Working Group of K9 program administrators, a regular event held by the federal and state governments.
This Working Group with representatives from all 16 federal states consists of the heads of the service dog schools and a representative from the ministry. In addition, representatives from the military, customs and the Federal Police are present.
We are more than excited about the great discussions we already had. We discussed in particular breeding selection tests, the role of dogsport as a selection tool for today's service dogs and ways how to improve this system as well as cooperate.

We are sincerely convinced that such cooperation will serve both K9 program administrators as well as the sport and before all, the working dog breeds.

Authorities cooperation

Together with service dog handlers from the police, military, customs and rescue dog organisations, we analyze what dogs need to bring with them in order to be operational. The goal is to create a catalogue, which must be part of a breeding review. The DMC licensing regulations will be the first to be adjusted according to the results. What do we want to achieve with it? That dogs go into breeding that are suitable for sport and service. And that the authorities can gain insights from the review that are specifically relevant to them. To make it clearer, a few examples that need to be checked more extensively in the future: nose work, environmental safety (e.g. undergrounds, working in the dark).

Last Tuesday the group "Promotion of young people" met. We took stock on the one hand and made a lot of great plans on the other!!! We made a start with the free seminar places for our Joung-Stars - now it goes into the next round. Our next goal is to inspire new people for our great sport and to infect them with the fascination of working dog sports. The Young-Star project will of course remain and will be further developed.
We are confident - let us surprise you 💪🏻

Cooperation with authorities that keep service dogs

We want sport and service to come together again, as in the past, as far as breeding is concerned. To this end, we have started talks in many countries. In a working group we are working on catalogs which properties are important for the various authorities: police, military, customs and also in rescue dog work. What the goal is: we want to align the breeding selection in such a way that these traits are also tested, as far as they can be inherited. Various breed clubs are already involved here.

Youth promotion

Youth work has picked up speed. We get so many free seminar places that we have to organize how we can publish them in a meaningful way. Jany Böhm opens an online mentoring program for young helpers. And the topics are expanding: now we not only cover IGP, but also have the first Mondio seminar on offer. Seminars on search dogs, mental training and soon physio. We are pleased how many clubs want to support young people and how many trainers are active. The nicest thing is that all places are always taken immediately.

First Ambassador Meeting

Last Sunday, our ambassadors met for a 2hour online meeting to discuss how to move forward with K9-and-Sports.
Christa Bremer, Vice-President of our German Kennel Club and Ambassador, had wonderful and motivating words to us: “… We all together should find a way that politicians and people outside of working-dog-sport learn that the sport is not only one of several existing sports, but a requirement (Anm. for society)!”
The goal of the meeting was to decide on working groups and assign valuable members.
They will work on the following topics starting now.

Arbeitsgruppen

Each Working Group will present their progress in the next meeting of all ambassadors in three weeks.
We are coming together and organizing ourselves. It is quite a task to bring together administrators and the sport world, it is quite a task to find the right people to drive things like scientific studies, public relations measures that actually reach the public and not just dogsport fans ..
But we will do everything to move ahead. Help us by growing the community and collect signatures from your dogsport friends!

You are incredible - we are heading for the number of 5000 signatures 💪🏻 - for this 1000 thanks!!!

The list of ambassadors is also getting longer and longer and every day we are able to recruit further valuable members from many nations and different areas of responsibility.

Currently we are working on a concrete plan how we can concretize our goals and to achieve them. We want to establish working groups that can exchange ideas on the respective topics or promote our cause in their own countries.

We will put all our heart and soul into presenting the sport of working dogs with its different areas in society in a positive way and putting it in the right light!!!

Together we are strong! We had you up to date!

First Ambassador Meeting

Last Sunday, our ambassadors met for a 2hour online meeting to discuss how to move forward with K9-and-Sports.
Christa Bremer, Vice-President of our German Kennel Club and Ambassador, had wonderful and motivating words to us: “… We all together should find a way that politicians and people outside of working-dog-sport learn that the sport is not only one of several existing sports, but a requirement (Anm. for society)!”
The goal of the meeting was to decide on working groups and assign valuable members.
They will work on the following topics starting now.

Arbeitsgruppen

Each Working Group will present their progress in the next meeting of all ambassadors in three weeks.
We are coming together and organizing ourselves. It is quite a task to bring together administrators and the sport world, it is quite a task to find the right people to drive things like scientific studies, public relations measures that actually reach the public and not just dogsport fans ..
But we will do everything to move ahead. Help us by growing the community and collect signatures from your dogsport friends!

Our focus!

We want to educate the public about the value of working dogs to society. We want to counteract prejudice against these dogs and sports. We want to actually reach the public by making use of modern channels.

We will cooperate with administrators of working K-9 Programs in connection with sport, public relations and breeding. 

 

We want to support and engage with children and young adults who are interested in both sports and K9-related jobs - whatever breed they may have, wherever they may live.
