We quite regularly receive requests for IFR-Membership. All are very well meant but sometimes however based on the wrong idea that the IFR is an organization with the annual IGP-World Championship and World Show as it's main activities and/or goals on it's agenda. This is of course wrong. Those activities are not our goals but instruments to help achieve our goals.
Statutory, the formal goal of the IFR is to worldwide align the breeding of the Rottweiler with the requirements of human and animal living together, this with respect for the demands that are proper to modern and future society and yet without loss of the original physical characteristics and traits of character of the Rottweiler as defined by the FCI-breed- standard. These traits of character consist in a high confidence of character, a sociable behavior in the family and society and the aptitude of a utility dog.
