We have no issue with a club being a member of any other organization and accept clubs that have been recognized by other IGP organizations. We promote comradery within the working dog community.
The WGSDPA titles are AWDF and FCI recognized. For instance, Oktoberfest was judged by an FCI judge with approval from the Kennel Club abroad. The WGSDPA Nationals will be judged by two FCI judges with permission from the Hungarian Kennel Club and VDH. These two judges will award FCI IGP titles. The top three go to Germany to compete at the RSV2000 World Championship which utilizes IGP exercises but a slightly different scoring system.
WGSDPA judges can judge for WGSDPA and AWDF local clubs.
Also, the AWDF and WGSDPA can utilize FCI judges as FCI judges, not as individuals. The country kennel club releases the judges officially.
The WGSDPA can have trials with FCI judges writing FCI-IGP 1, 2, 3 etc.
We support cultivating judges and seek to enhance their professional growth and development. To that end, what sets us apart, we will pay the organizational fees of our judges and competition fees outside of WGSDPA. We promote interactions with other organizations and abide by the rules set in place. The sport needs well rounded judges. WGSDPA judges will stress having empathy and applying rules for certification.
