Welcome to Schnauzerfest 2017 October 6-8, 2017 - Louisburg, North Carolina

The Working Riesenschnauzer Federation Annual IPO Championship Trial and Conformation Show. The only Breed Club recognized by the American Working Dog Federation to represent the Giant Schnauzer in America.

IPO Competition tests the working dog at a high level. The judge evaluates the handler/dog team in Tracking, Obedience and Defense exercises. The IPO Trial, Körung (Breed Survey) and Conformation evaluation all help to determine the best temperament, trainability, health and balance in the working dog.

Why WRSF? : Evaluation!

We are serious about the breed... Rigorous training and proofing on the part of the dog/handler team. Honest, standardized evaluation and critical critique by qualified and licensed judges.

This is how we improve the breed...
