I have been watching several videos over the last week.... on vacation and had some spare time in-between working my dogs. Anyways, this brings me to my question... or I should say curiousity ..
What not so popular breeds do you have pictures or videos of doing IPO. This is EXCLUDING the GSD, Rott, Mali and Dobi..
Here is a video I watched.... in this video there is a Briard... a Dogo and a Yellow Lab..

I've got pics of an American Bulldog.
I know someone who does IPO with their Aussies, but I don't have any pics or videos of it.

American bulldogs are quite popular here for IPO. As a matter of fact, a breeder even hosted a local trial last year!
Our club had a Russian terrier (looked like a bouvier) but the owner has now changed clubs, so I don't know how the dog is doing. And, of course, bouviers are fairly common in the sport. Our TD took his bouvier to an IPO 3.
Another member had a mixed breed that was probably border collie x shepherd. It did great on its BH, but lacked the drive for protection work.

There was a SchH3 border collie in the first club I belonged to.

Crash, is that a Cardigan in you sig? I've always thought they looked kind of like GSDs with short legs...
And then, of course, there's Mr. Murphy! This is one of my all-time favourite videos. The coolest thing about it is the dog is so obviously enjoying what he's doing.
I asked Claudia if she ever titled Mr. Murphy. She said she tried, but he just couldn't manage the dumbbell retrieve. It was too heavy for him.

From a long time ago - there was 2 Pits and a Golden X in the first club that I belonged to. I was training my Belgian Tervuren and Bouvier. I have worked a Standard Poodle in PP-type work, now that was what we called a "sleeper" dog (like sleeper car, for anyone familiar with the term), at least the poodle had a puppy cut and not one of those fancy show cuts, lol. Also, Pierre Lafond in WA state had trained a Daschund in Ring-type work, it was hilarious to see that little dog hanging off the suit butt.
Sun - that Fox Terrier performance is wonderful & hilarious, thanks for posting. I have a pic somewhere of the Dacshund hanging off the butt of the suit pants but don't know where, and unfortunately no video from other non-standard breeds, as we didn't take video back then.

I love it, too, Koots. BTW, Murph was a Jack Russell terrier. I think he was a rescue, and he was definitely a real PITA until Claudia taught him schutzhund to drain his excess energy. She used to have his story on her website, but I can't find it now.
Love the little tribute she wrote for him at the end of the video!

Oh, thanks for the correction on the breed - should have known that from his structure. Sounds like the JR named "Moose" that played "Freddie" on Frasier, he was a rescue and needed a job to do for the same reasons (if I remember correctly).
