This dog competition is no longer offered on DVD. It is only offered as a FREE Leerburg on Demand video.


The working dog sport of the Netherlands (Holand) is designed around street police work. It takes 2 years to train a dog to the KNPV I title and 50% of those that pass are sold to the local Police and Military.

This video was filmed at a KNPV trial in Dordrecht, Holland which is located about 12 miles from Rotterdam. There are 3 judges for every trial and they allowed me on the field (where safety presented itself) in Dordrecht.

About 90% of the dogs that compete in these trials are Malinois, 5% are Bouvies and 5% are the Dutch Shepherd. The Dutch do not believe in registering their dogs in a breed registry. Their feeling is that this will take away from the working ability of their dog. When I pressed this question, the consistent answer was that when a police dog bites, his looks account for nothing.

This tape details the exercises and points of the KNPV trial. In addition to some outstanding footage, a friend's wife translated the rules for the trial and I have edited the tape as a detailed documentary of the KNPV. You will see the dutch version of guard the article, the heel next to a bike. The dutch version of food refusal from a stranger, the daring helper work of the KNPV (where we see one helper sent to the hospital). You will see every exercise in the KNPV with it's point break down.
