2021 SW Regional IGP Championship USCA, Ojai CA
Team SG Ajax VHD K9 & Rossi
What a great weekend! We love to see our Schutzhund family in California – that’s our world!
Its always worth the drive to get to meet all of you guys and friends and make new ones!!! Great organized Event, hosted at a beautiful place, with awesome judges. We are glad that we decided to be there.
Actually I entered V Alpha vom Haus Denfors K9 IGP3, for this Championship, due to a sport injury Monday before the event; I entered Ajax kind of last minute!
All training was focused on Alpha for preparation for this level event. So I am more than proud of my Ajax, that he just worked so great throughout the Championship.
And me Covid-19 vaccinated and knocked out from Wednesday night to Friday, Saturday I felt better but still lil powerless and breathless, that must have irritated Ajax in protection, he was a bit out of of control and attentive to me same time.
It was his first IGP3 on a Championship field and we ended up with hard earned total of 250 Points under the awesome judges Frank Phillips (Field) and Mike Caputo (Tracking).
(For those ....TSB: Triebveranlagung = instinctive behaviour, Selbstsicherheit = self-confidence, Belastbarkeit = ability to cope with stress.)
Sunday tracking, Ajax was presenting his tracking skills like a champ and we ended up with a 94 points. I enjoyed every word of your great tracking critic a lot Michael Caputo
Great Job to the best Tracking team (Wili Ortner, Kris Taylor,
for such amazing fields and the professional layed tracks. Awesome job everyone.
Obedience: 80 Points under Frank Philips (Sit out of motion high very good, , down with recall- very good, stand out of motion- very good, Retrieve flat- very good, Retrieve jump-high good, retrieve over the wall – no jump back, sent out – not straight and powerful. Two main Exercises’ costed too much points.
I got asked what happened in protection and I will explain a short version:
First of all, the helper Keith Bendixen and Tyler Plüss
thank you for your great and safe helper work!
Ajax search for the helper- high very good, Hold and Bark-Ajax took a bite and needed a second command to call out, Prevention of escape- comes with powerful full grip, carried it very strong, out quicker-very good, defense against the attack-full calm grip, carried strong through the pressure phase, cleaner out and takes a big grip-good,
Here it comes to the back transport- correct position then too attentive to me not to the helper after the left turn,-still a very good but at the attack of the helper he was so attentive to me instead of the helper, that he crushed into the helper and hits very hard on a short distance, he yelped but he carried the sleeve hard but vocally through the pressure phase and the rest of all the exercises.
OF course he didn’t show his powerful and fast long bite as usual.
We end up with a total of 76 points with obviously TSB “a”.
I want to thank you dear Frank for the help and assessment of the back transport situation down field. I appreciate it that I didn’t need to decide by myself only.
All turned out good. Ajax was sore that day. Next day he already did better. I will get him in for a check of his neck and shoulder.
New Team @ VHD K9

Trialing in Idaho, under USCA Judge Nathaniel Roque
Two of our dogs
Ajax vom Haus Denfors K9, IGP3, BHOT (Another IGP3 for Qualification)
Bluna vom Haus Denfors K9, BH, BHOT
❤️ Bluna VHD K9, BHOT ❤️archived her BH under USCA judge Nathaniel Roque. She didn’t perform 100% with her pretty healing since I think she was just stressed out with traveling, hotel, and of course the heat and new field. But she is such a sweetheart and she did it! No excuses we will work her through it 💪
My Champ ❤️Ajax VHD K9, IGP3, BHOT ❤️his first trial after the Regionals in April when he got injured:
Fast and powerful protection routine! I was very happy how obedient he performed 💪
But I might was too happy too early! After the long bite he had an endless full and hard grip.
DQ no out, no critic but an extra
Comment of USCA Judge Nathaniel Roque:
Great Genetics with excellent grips in all exercises. Makes me a proud Breeder!

Today we had the possibility to meet one of our A-Litter puppies after
4 years! It’s so wonderful as a breeder when they still freak out to hear your voice and love being with you!
