Held in Saco, Maine on October 14, 15 and 16 2016 the AWMA (Malinois) National Championships. The dog sport, IPO, is a three phase, multiple day competition where tracking (nosework), obedience, and protection abilities are judged.
The weather was cool but gorgeous and the participants worked hard. It was an honor to photograph this intense dog sport where obedience is paramount.
