Randmerencup 2014

VZH and IPO (B/C) match for Belgian ShepherdsDutch version

Location RandmerencupThe "Randmerencup" is a VZH and IPO B/C match especially for Groenendael, Tervueren, Laekenois and Malinois. This "Randmerencup" is open for all certified VZH, IPO I, II en III Belgian sheperds.

In 2005 this match was held for the first time. It was a succes. In 2006 the match was orginised for the second time. Although the number of participants was not large, there clearly was a need for a match like this. There even were participants from abroad. Therefore it was decided to orginise this event each year. To lower the threshhold to participate, since 2007 the match is open for BH-certified dogs as well, also specifically for longhair Belgians. As per 2012, the match is per breed variety, to sustain an open and fair trial for all.

For the first two editions there was also a side-match for IPO-uncertified dogs. In 2007, the VZH competition was added. For the 2012 edition, the VZH part was skipped from the programme and the Malinois were added as a category. Since 2013, the VZH part is back again! The floating trophy is restricted to the longhairs.

The aim of the "Randmerencup" is to stimulate working with longhair Belgians. We hope this will raise the demand for good working longhair Belgians, leading to more focuss in breeding plans on character and working skills.
