Chris had previously won three national championships(2013 2015 2017) with the sire of Judge, Danger von Juliet. Chris now has the most successful Father-Son combinations in the history of IGP in America! 

IGP(formerly known as schutzhund) is one of the hardest disciplines to train a dog for. The training is extremely difficult because it involves so many different exercises with a grading scale that scrutinizes the most finest details. The training takes years and starts when dog is just a puppy. Training involves tracking, obedience, agility and protection of the handler. IGP has the finest breed German Shepherd’s in the world and their training is the gold standard for working dogs.
