Requirement for ZVV and SVV titles...... 


Here is my attempt at translating the ZVV/SVV title. If the reader finds fault, please let me know. My skill with the Slovak language is limited..!!!



1. 300 yards long- 2 corners, 2 articles. The owner lays the track. Articles can be wood, rubber, leather or fabric.

2. 1 article in the middle of the first leg and 2nd article on end of track.

3. 30 minutes old and you have 15 minutes to finish.


1. The first exercise recal. when you come on the field is to turn the dog loose and continue to walk down the field. The dog must go away from you and when you are half way down the field you call the dog to HEEL position and continue to walk. The dog must come to heel position and continue with you. A big difference with ZVV/SVV obedience and SCH or IPO is the judge instructs you on when and where to do the exercises.

2. Heeling with turns and about turns are dictated by the judge so you never know where or when you will turn.

3. Sit, down, stand

4. Bark on command next to handler.

5. Then down in motion.

6. Retrieve on the flat.

7. Jump the jump without the dumbbell.

8. Dog walk

9. Long down

10. reaction to the gun.



This test can be in a stadium or forest !

1. Revir ---Search an area about the size of a soccer field with 4 search areas indicated. Can be 4 blinds or trees.

2. Hold and bark -- When the helper is found, the dog should hold and bark. If he bites, it is only a small fault.

3. Search and interview the helper Handler goes to the blind and heels the dog off. Handler calls the helper out of the blind and helper goes between 3 and 5 yards away and stops. The handler tells him "hands up" dog down and go to search the helper. This part is a little different because the handler must look for an actual weapon.

4. Meet the helper ---Then, walking in heel position you see a bad guy coming to you and you tell him to stop and start having a confrontation with him. The dog must sit and stay calm until the helper attacks. The helper attacks straight into the handler and dog. The helper must act like he has been bitten in real life. He must yell and try to get away simulating a real situation. When the handler commands the helper to stop, the dog must out.

5. Escape bite is 100 yards. The dog must out.

6. Courage test 20 yards. Helper runs straight into the dog with full aggression. Out is optional here.


100 points per each discipline

300 total
