The 2017 USRC National IPO Championship is in the books and what an amazing event it was! I have been to several championships and this event was one of the most fun events I've ever been to. The host club BARK spared no detail to make sure competitors were taken care of and treated to a fair, high caliber event. The quality of dogs in this event was incredible! These dogs gave some spectacular routines but unfortunately some lost some costly exercises so the scores don't fully reflect how nice the competition was. We are going to work on a video highlight reel as soon as I receive the footage. I took over 800+ photos of the dogs that I will get posted in the next few days but here is our new 2017 USRC National IPO Champion, Anung un Rama "Hellboy" van het Bos with Handler/Owner/Trainer Lauren Louise Waters. Hellboy turned out an amazing 280 point performance, including a 97 V Protection with taking down the back half helper on the courage test! In 2nd place was Renee Lancaster and Chiron vom Rottberg who also showed a spectacular 96 V Protection Routine! In 3rd place was Don Brooks and Wu-Tang's Axel with a solid 85-80-89! Thank you Bay Area Rottweiler Klub for hosting such a great event and thank you everyone for supporting the USRC!
