The plans for a new program starting 5 years ago its more basic for heeling and tracking but its never gonna make it only the zoekhonden programma, and the PH1/PH2/Obejct isn,t so much changed for many years
Yes KNPV got lower membersship but also many clubs have to stop because some clubs have give back the ground where they are practise to the municipality . Its not very easy to start a KNPV club today because to rent some proper ground can be very dificult and some expensive and KNPV clubs are not very rich for 90 percent its only a hobby.
Than over 10-15 KNPV clubs last years the clubhouse with all the materials on fire by vandals than also they have to stop.
There are still enough certified dogs for the dutch governement for many years and outsidfe the Netherlands
KNPV got to be too comercial over last years ex members have their own business now and don,t need the KNPV
There are more and more young dogs without certification go to the US and other countries this also is a reason why some members stop .. a good quality young dog have now almost the same price or more as a dog with a PH-1certification some departmens worldwide don,t give about titles. But the knowledge is still around .
So STAY ON TOPIC iTS ABOUT IPO NOT KNPV have nothing to do with that IPO program..

if you read my first post you will see that I mentioned reason for new rules is lower numbers of members, same as in KNPV, that is all I said,
enjoy your day

As for IPO... I will NOT and never will be sending my dog over a hurdle with a pivoting top. With my luck, my dog gets stuck and will break his leg.

You can find the new rules on the website of the FCI

The jump as we currently use it, WITHOUT the twisting top, will remain the jump for the IGP program.
The FCI send out messages to the official clubs in different countries. The Belgium and Dutch already posted these messages and knowing that the president of the FCI Working Committee is Dutch I would say it's a pretty reliable source
