Special congratulations to Taivo and Ruudi, who achieved 2nd place among 10 competitors. This was the cery first competition for both of them. In IPO-2 there were also Riho and Ignis participating, but they had some misunderstandings concerning sit, down and stand and also A-frame, so no result this time. Results with points:

There were also Merike Kungla & Estrellest Hurmuri Käbi participating, but unfortunately Käbi got injured in protection training just few days before the competition and this did not allow this team to show their training level at obedience and protection. They still had very nice track (94p).

We are very proud, that the tracking results of our team members were the three best ones of the championships (98, 98 and 94 points).

Reelika and Fiona were the last team to show their protectionwork and they did a super job with 93 points, this was also the best C part of the championships!

The Estonian team at FCI IPO-FH World Championships consists of Sportkoer's sportsmen - Merike & Käbi, Aarne & Sannu, team captain Aivo. By now our team has nicely arrived to Germany and also made their first tracks there. We are grateful for everyone who have supported them and wish them best of luck in this competition. Most recent information about Estonian team at these championships can be found on respective Facebook page!


Estonian IPO-FH team will start their journey Germany to World Championships in the middle of April. The team has already been supported from various sources. If there are still people who wish to support the team, we are really grateful!

It is possible to trasfer the support to Sportkoer's bank account (LHV Bank, IBAN: EE827700771000830075) or give it directly to team captain Aivo.

Thankfully Merike, Aarne and Aivo.
We also would like to thank everyone who participated in tracking lecture, which helped to raise 385 EUR to the team!


Spring is here and another dogsport season has begun. As in previous years, Sportkoer is organizing multiple events in spring: on May 10, there will be FH competition and a week later, on May 17, JUNIOR CUP 2014 obedience competition for young doghandlers! More information can be found on Events' page! Good luck with training and we are hoping to meet you at competitions!


In the beginning of February Aivo was holding tracking and protection seminar "at other side of the Earth" - in New Zealand. Little summary of these events can be fount under Events section and pictures under Photos!


Estonian German Shepherds' Association also awarded the best of this breed from the year 2013. We are proud and happy, that Sportkoer's members have achieved many high places again:

Best IPO dog
1. Estrellest Hurmuri Hundiin and Anu Oks
2. Estrellest Hurmuri Käbi and Merike Kungla
5. koht Wunderstern Joop and Toomas Kattel

Best tracking dog

1. Estrellest Hurmuri Käbi and Merike Kungla

Best obedience dog

2. Estrellest Hurmuri Hundiin and Anu Oks

Best universal dog

1. Wunderstern Joop and Toomas Kattel
2. Heleros Qwinto and Katriin Salumaa
4-5. Margman Wildfire Wanda and Monika Rusing

Congratulations to everyone!!

It is also interesting to note, that EGSA's best universal dog is training the IPO-part in our club again. In Sportkoer we have always been thinking this way, that also show-line german sheperds must have drives and “brains” and be trained properly.
Because of this we have given our best to train also show-line dogs as high as possible. And the statistics looks really great - best universal german shepherd (show + IPO) has been trained with our help every year since 2007 (except for 2012, when best placing was 2nd)

2013 1. Toomas & Joop
2012 2. Katriin & Qwinto
2011 1. Piret & Quicken
2010 1. Kairi & Apollon
2009 1. Kairi & Apollon
2008 1. Mare & Dakota
2007 1. Kairi & Apollon
