The New Alternative to Obtain a Körung
The alternate and easier path to a körung are as follows:
- Formal Certification:
- ZAP 1 (Wesen test)
- Breeding Evaluation
- BH (Begleithund) not required
- AD (Ausdauerpruefung)
- ZAP2***, the dog will still have to pass three phases at one trial: tracking, obedience, and protection. However, it is a watered-down version of IGP (IPO).
- Once the above requirements have been met you can submit your dog for a Körung and after passing the examinations your dog will obtain its Koerklasse designation (KKL).
***Dogs obtaining their KKL with this method (without IGP titles) are not eligible for the VA designation.
