A press release from the WUSV is imminent, but in the meantime I can make the following personal comments;
The FCI and WUSV entered into an agreement some time ago that was based on mutual respect and co operation in regard to any matters relating to the German Shepherd Dog. This co operative understanding was impeded as a consequence of internal conflicts arising between a number of WUSV GSD clubs and their countries Kennel Controls - FCI affiliates.
These conflicts led to the recent vote by the FCI to annul the FCI - WUSV co operation agreement effective May next year.
Notwithstanding the above, the FCI - WUSV mutually respectful relationship that existed pre agreement will continue and the impact on WUSV member breed clubs other than those clubs involved in the internally contained conflicts referred to, will be zero.
Speculation in regard to SV judges is best addressed by stating that SV judges are endorsed/recognized by the VDH - the German Kennel Control, an affiliate of the FCI, and as such the ending of the co operation agreement has no bearing whatsoever on the SV nor its judges.
I trust these comments allay concern, speculation and in some cases inappropriate alarmist remarks.
