Since 2003, we, Ron and Tammy Murray have maintained our club; The Sirius Working Dog Association. This club is a member of the DVG; an all breed (including mixed breeds) organization promoting the sport of IPO (commonly known as Schutzhund). We are a small club, and we like it that way, but if you are driven to train your dog, help other members, promote the sport and the training philosophies found here, then you’re for us! Contact us at swda@leidenschaftkennels.ca for details on our training days, costs, etc.
