World working German Shepherds competition comes to Philly

Philadelphia is the site next week of the 2013 WUSV World Championship for German Shepherd Dogs.

The prestigious event, which will be held at PPL Stadium Oct. 17-20, features dogs and their handlers from around the world as they compete for title of World Champion, while countries vie for team titles.

The event highlights the teamwork of dog and handler as they execute precision and unity drills in tracking, obedience and protection. It's being held in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the German Shepherd in the United States.

The local team of Jim Hill and his German shepherd Zwack from Montogomery County (on the video below) are alternates in the competition.
