Dortmund double - Bundessieger / International
Best in Show at the Bundesieger Show was the Weimaraner, Driftwood’s Quick Draw, bred by Breuhaus,
Mulford & Palm and owned by Josee Sales from the Netherlands and shown by Naomi van Mourik.
The BIS was judged by the FCI President, Rafael de Santiago (Puerto Rico) also pictured are the President of the German KC,
Peter Friedrich and with the rosette, OUR DOGS representative, Kerry Rushby.
Germany holds a number of Championship shows every year, of these, the Dortmund shows stand out, these are double shows, two International Shows in three days in parallel and OUR DOGS is the International Media Partner for both these famous events. On the third weekend of October, on 16-18th, the Autumn Dortmund called Hund un Pferd (Dog and Horse), took place with thousands of dogs and hundreds of horses.

There were a lot of visitors and customers in the six halls where the show was held. One of the halls was just for the trade stands, one more was shared between the stands and the main ring, and in three halls were the horses, presentation rings and horse trading stands. The Westfalenhalle, where the show was held is in the middle of Dortmund, beside a nice park, which is very handy for walking with dogs too.
The list of the most popular dogs was interesting too; German breeds were on the leading position, the most entries were by Great Danes with 137 (but, by the FCI rules, they give out 3 BOBs from the 5 colours), the runner-up were the Rhodesian Ridgebacks with 116 entries.
There were more nice numbers in Golden Retrievers 110, Dalmatians 99, Labrador Retrievers 98, Bernese Mountain Dogs 86 and Beagles 81. For the Bundessieger Show the judging of the Groups were: Friday, Groups 3, 7, 8 and 10; Saturday Groups 2, 4 and 5 and Sunday Groups 1, 6 and 9. The other show was the same group order but on different days. It means, if an exhibitor entered both shows, you got one day rest.
The breed judging was from 9am, the BIS finale closed about 6pm, every day. At the breed rings were lists with a timetable with starting times of all breeds, and mostly, they kept to it. The UK was represented by 5 judges, Ms Mandy E Romeo-Dieste, who judged Retrievers for the Bundessieger Show, and Mr Brian Foster who judged the Beagles. Steven Seymor judged Pekingese, and Shih-Tzus. Ms. Jen A. Davies judged Beagles for the International Show and Mr Dave Chapman judged the American and Japanese Akitas at the International Show.
The exhibitors and judges palette was very international and you could meet with people from all countries of Europe, and more. Both shows were about 50 rings each day.
