There are three phases in IPO Dogsport, Tracking, Obedience and Character Assessment work. Each of the individual exercises within the IPO Character Assessment work ("Part C") has the purpose of revealing and testing different facets of a dog's genetic temperament. The IPO Dogsport may be used as a gauge to fulfill retention of desirable traits, such as workability and sound temperament. In many countries the IPO Dog Sport Scheme is being used as a quality control test for identification of dogs with undesirable character traits.
