Thread: Dog Sport (Schutzhund and/or IPO) in Sydney

  1. #1

    Default Dog Sport (Schutzhund and/or IPO) in Sydney

    Hi guys,
    it's been a while since I've been on these forums and I think I've actually moved twice... Anyway, I was a proud member of the Adelaide DogSport Club for over a year but now that I'm back in Sydney, I would love the opportunity to continue with my training.
    Does anyone know whether there are any active clubs in Sydney? So sad that this sport is not more common and seemingly becoming less so. Hearing all these stories about dog attacks and yet they're banning dog sports, all that does in my opinion is make the good people stop a sport that helps create some of the most stable, obedient and reliable dogs I've ever met and makes the bad people go underground without any guidance from anyone with any knowledge and/or good reputation.

    Hi '99bottles' - welcome back !

    Would the previous club that you were with - not able to help you with this query ? Only other suggestion that I have is contact Steve from this link:

    Hi 99 bottles

    Hmm, Sydney now?

    let me see -> Canberra -> Melbourne -> Hobart
    then back to Adelaide on your way to Perth and Darwin?

    At least that would be around Australia in a few years. Here's hoping your formidable hound has no reason to make his mark where he shouldn't but you're glad he did. I love that story...

    There must be at least one IPO club in Sydney and Steve C will know where.

    Haha there's still a few to cross off the list unfortunately, so far it's only been Adelaide and Sydney but there's still time...

    Thanks, I'll try sending Steve an email then.

    Thought you were in QLD as well? No?

    anyone would think you (or your partner) were working for defence.

    Lol I was in QLD for both work and because my sister (who does live in Brisbane) is getting married. I moved from Sydney to Adelaide with the old partner and found a new partner in Brisbane on my way back to Sydney who has moved here with me Definitely an upgrade... As a funny side note, my ex actually used his relationship with Sammy as a reason for me not to be able to leave him, he said Sammy would not accept another man... It's true, Sammy is a bit fussy but he loves the new guy, almost making me jealous.

    Does Sammy like the new in laws better too?

    I'd rather be single than deal with a bloke that uses my own dog to blackmail me. That's so wrong. I'm surprised Sammy didn't do the same thing to his stuff as he did to the FIL's stuff. I always worry when I don't like the inlaws or the way they treat each other or me.

    Unfortunately the person Sammy has issues with is my mother's partner, and he is still very much in the picture.

    Thanks for the help everyone, going to meet some people this weekend and see how we go
