iPup - IPTC


In 2010, International Puppy and Trainer Conference was retired.  Below is a bit of the history of the IPTC.


IPTC History, by Pup Cosmo


IPTC BEGAN IN HOUSTON AS THE INTERNATIONAL PUPPY CONTEST (IPC) IN 2001 BY FOUNDER, PATRICK CHEES, AKA NIPPER. IT WAS HIS VISION THAT THERE WOULD BE AN EVENT THAT WOULD HELP GET PEOPLE TOGETHER WHO ARE INTO THE PUP HEADSPACE. 


THE FIRST IPC TOOK PLACE IN HOUSTON IN 2001 AND ALPHA PUP RAY WAS NAMED THE INTERNATIONAL PUPPY 2001.


IN 2002, PUP TIM TOOK INTERNATIONAL PUPPY '02 WITH HIS SEXY LOOK AND OUTSTANDING STYLE. HIS TRAINER, MASTER SKIP, AND HE HAD THEIR EVERY MOVE WELL EXECUTED. MASTER SKIP'S HANDLING OF HIS PUP SHOWED THAT TRAINERS SHOULD BE RECOGNIZED AS WELL.  PATRICK KNEW THAT THE COURSE OF THIS CONTEST HAD CHANGED: THAT THE CONTEST FROM THIS POINT ON, WOULD BE THE INTERNATIONAL PUPPY & TRAINER CONTEST. 


IN 2003, IPTC MOVED TO DALLAS WITH SEAN-MICHAEL AS INTERNATIONAL TRAINER '03 AND PATCH AS INTERNATIONAL PUP '03.  IN 2004, MISTRESS SIMONE BECAME INTERNATIONAL TRAINER '04 AND PUP FIFI TOOK INTERNATIONAL PUPPY '04.  BY THE END OF THE YEAR, PATRICK HAD PASSED AWAY LEAVING THE FATE OF IPTC UNKNOWN. 


MASTER ROY, PATRICK'S SIR, AND THE TEXAS LEATHER TRIBE (TLT) FAMILY HAVE CONTINUED PATRICK’S DREAM AS OWNERS OF IPTC. PUP BONER OF GALVESTON PRODUCED IPTC 2005. MASTER GARY MADE INTERNATIONAL TRAINER '05 AND PUP KELLY WAS NAMED INTERNATIONAL PUPPY '05.   TLT HAS SOUGHT TO CONTINUE PATRICK'S LEGACY BY EVOLVING THE IPTC FROM A CONTEST INTO A CONFERENCE AND GAINED SUPPORT FROM THE BEYOND VANILLA COMMITTEE TO BRING BACK IPTC FOR 2006. 


NOW HELD IN CONJUNCTION WITH BV, IPTC SEEKS TO HELP OTHERS WITH EDUCATION, CONNECTIONS AND ENJOYMENT OF THE PUP EXPERIENCE.  IT HAS A PLACE TO BECOME WHAT THE COMMUNITY WANTS IT TO BE. IT CAN CONTINUE TO SERVE THE COMMUNITY AS WELL AS EVOLVE TO THE COMMUNITIES NEEDS. 


In 2009, PUP COSMO WILL ONCE AGAIN SERVE AS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AND PRODUCER OF THIS YEAR'S IPTC.  FOR THE FIRST TIME, IPTC/IPUP WILL HOST TWO CONFERENCES - ONE IN HOUSTON AS PART OF NLA: HOUSTON’S SPRING INIQUITY (APRIL 2009) AND IN DALLAS IN CONJUNCTION WITH NLA: DALLAS’ BEYOND VANILLA WEEKEND (SEPTEMBER 2009).
