OGOK is the main organization responsible for the German Shepherd breed in Bulgaria, recognized by the BNFC.

The Körung regulations serve to improve the breeding of the German Shepherd Dog. It is an integral part of the Regulations of the Association and is mandatory for all its members.

The task of Kyorunga is to carry out a team of these purebred animals, which, in terms of their psyche, working qualities and anatomical structure, are particularly suitable for the preservation and improvement of the breed.

The plan for holding Kyorungi is adopted at a general meeting.

Supervisors are the persons entitled to conduct the examination. The requirements for them are specified in the Rules for Judges of OGOK.

The owner of a dog presented at Körung must be a member of the FCI. With several owners of one dog, for OGOK – the owner is the one who is authorized to sign the documents. The owner of a dog who is denied entry to the Kennel Book may not present a dog to the Körung, nor may such a dog be presented by other persons.

The decision of the Foreman is final and not subject to appeal.

In one day, 30 dogs are allowed for breeding expertise.

All results of kerungs are collected in the Office, the correctness of the documentation is checked and certificates are issued. At the end of each calendar year, a bulletin is issued for Körunga with the data of all dogs that have appeared at Körunga during the year. In it, male dogs are recorded separately from female dogs.

Dogs that appeared but did not pass the Körung are marked in the pedigrees.

The presented dogs must be identified by the chip number entered in the pedigree.

2. Psychic Check:

The handler is obliged to check the psyche of each presented dog. It can be held during the entire Körung. According to the requirements of the standard, the dog must show confidence, not pay attention to side irritants, have a healthy nervous system and benevolent.

3. Shot attitude:

Two shots are fired at a distance of not less than 15 paces. The dog must remain indifferent.

4. Test of fearlessness and willingness to fight:

At the direction of the Handler, the handler of the dog, who is on a lead, move in the direction of the shelter.

At 15 paces before the shelter, the handler takes the leash off the dog, and it continues to move closely to his left leg. When the handler approaches about 5 steps from the shelter, the figure suddenly comes out and attacks the dog’s handler. Exchanging blows between the figure and the driver is not allowed.

The dog must immediately attack the figure and bite him. After the dog has bitten, the figure hits it 2 times with a flexible stick. The blows are allowed to be on the sides of the body and in the withers area. At the direction of the Master, the figure stops all actions. The dog, independently or on command, must release the figure.

The handler hooks the dog with the leash. The figure runs straight away from the dog, shouting menacingly. When the distance becomes 40-50 steps, the handler releases the dog, and he himself remains in place. At a signal from the Custodian, when the dog approaches within about 30 paces of the fleeing figure, he turns with outstretched arms and menacing cries, and attacks the dog, which he must unhesitatingly bite.

After a short struggle, the figure ceases all actions. The dog must release the figurine on its own or on a single command. If the dog does not let go, he must remain for another 30 seconds without performing any actions.

At the direction of the Handler, the handler quickly goes to the dog and removes it from the figure.

If in the first exercise “attack” and in the second “escape attempt with counterattack”, the dog independently or with just one command ends the attack, in the dog writing this is reflected by the words “let go”. If the dog does not fulfill this requirement, it is recorded “not released”.

The overall assessment of these checks is reflected in the following words:

6. Evaluation of the movements and inspection of the dog in a stall.

During this inspection, the Foreman carries out the Ordination. The dog must be presented without any additional assistance. After the description is completed, the Choirmaster checks the accuracy of what has been recorded, confirms it with his signature and announces through the sounding technique, the description and the awarded Choir-class. The documentation from Körunga is sent to the office that issues a certificate for this.
