Team Australia

The Team representing Australia at the 2024 WUSV IGP3 World Championship (1-6 October, Meppen Germany) will be assembled based on the ranking outcome at the 2024 WGSDCA National Championship.

Planning to make it on the team? - Dog must have a prior IGP3 title awarded under WGSDCA - Dog must make a minimum of 240pts at our national and at least 80pt in each discipline. - Dog must have WUSV recognised pedigree and HD/ED scores. - Dogs born from 01.01.2020 must have a show grading of at least "Good'. Australian Import/Export Regulations: - Dog must have a valid Rabies vaccination certificate and a RNATT. - All standard vaccinations must be up to date. - You must apply for an import/export permit via DAFF. - Overseas blood testing is required to get the dog back to Australia. Travelling to Germany: - Be prepared to spend at least 3 weeks overseas to ensure enough time to get the blood results required overseas. - The dog can arrive to any German city but only fly out from Frankfurt. If the required overseas blood testing is NOT done in Frankfurt, then you need to find a German State vet in that area where the blood sampling was done and who is willing to endorse the paperwork before the dog can get back to Australia.
