As all of you will appreciate, 2020/21 has brought its own unique challenges in holding qualification and selection trials for any major event, many of which have been cancelled.
At the time of writing the WUSC WM and WUSV Universal Sieger are still planned to take place in Lerma, Spain from the 31st October to the 7th November 2021. We have declared that Great Britain will send a full team for both events.
Normally BAGSD IPO and the GSDL WDG will jointly host a Selection Trial for the WUSV WM in June of the same year. Separately the criterial for Universal Sieger yields the selection of the team for this event.
For this year only, it has been agreed that a single selection trial will be organised jointly by BAGSD and GSDL WDG for both the WUSV WM and Universal Sieger combined.
The event will take place on 4th/5th September at Arley Moss Equestrian Centre in Cheshire. The judge will be Horst-Dieter Traeger, SV.
Entry will be capped at 20 dogs in total with 10 entries available to BAGSD and 10 entries to GSDL WDG competitors. The entry criterial for the GSDL DG places will be an amalgamation of the criterial for Joint and Universal Sieger, the places will be open to any GSD fulfilling the WUSV criteria for entry onto one of the teams (see below) which has an IGP3 score obtained at a GSDL WDG event since the last Joint Selection Trial (01/07/2019). Dogs which fulfil the requirements for both teams will be asked to choose which team they wish to be on in order of final placings at the Joint Selection Trial.
