Welcome to the Canadian Working Dog Federation (CWDF) website

The CWDF is an all-breed organization dedicated to the IPO/IGP dog sport in Canada, created to federate all Canadian working breed clubs that are already or want to get involved in IPO/IGP and the Utility Dogs sports regulated by the FCI through its Utility Dogs Commission.

Its mission is to:

  • provide a platform for breed clubs to collaborate and support their respective local members to organize IPO/IGP trials,
  • ensure that all IPO/IGP titles obtained in Canada through breed clubs are mutually recognized and centrally recorded,
  • develop an FCI recognized IPO/IGP Judges program, Helper program, and Tracklayer program,
  • organize a yearly National all-breed IPO/IGP Championship to select the dog/handler teams that will represent Canada at the FCI IPO/IGP and FCI IPO/IGP FH World Championships,
  • develop a sponsorship program to financially support the dog/handler teams that will represent Canada at the FCI IPO/IGP and FCI IPO/IGP FH World Championships.
