Schäferhundverein RSV2000 – Competence in Performance and Breeding

02/14 and 5/4, 2017 | On the decision of the VDH association's court

May 4, 2017: Yesterday the district court Dortmund again decided in an interim disposal that the RSV2000 is a member of VDH.
On Monday, February 13, 2017, our attorney informed us that the RSV2000 was expelled from the VDH with immediate effect by decision of the VDH Verbandsgericht (association's court) as of January 18, 2017.

Already in advance we heard about it from dog handlers of other continents. We know that this message is being discussed throughout the world of working dogs. Therefore we would like to inform you:

During the course of the proceedings, it became clear that we would not be able to penetrate the first chamber of the VDH Association Court with our justified arguments. We ask for your understanding that we are not going into detail at this point.

Despite the foreseeability in the past few months, we regret this decision of the Association Court. The decision does not strike us unexpectedly or unprepared, but the decision and the justification must now be legally examined in detail in order to prepare the way before a proper court. This takes a little time.

A final decision is not yet taken in our view. We inform our members and supporters as soon as news are available.

We would like to thank our members and supporters for their trust and the prudence with which they have hitherto dealt with this issue. We continue to ask patience and assure that we will carefully weigh our steps in consultation with our legal support.

Please also note the statement by our chairman Eugen Ecker.
Update March 10, 2017
Yesterday the civil court in Dortmund decided that the RSV2000 is member of the VDH until the main trial is finally decided.

Thank you so very much for your support
