76th & 77th Norte International Dog Shows, Porto

Written by

As I waited to check in at Manchester Airport I noticed a chap with a heavy case, a couple of check in desks further down. He was struggling to put the luggage on the belt, and then withdrew his wallet. Ah, he is going to bribe the girl on the desk, I thought. Looking closer I realised it was none other than Vince Hogan, with a suitcase full of annuals, for Moscow! Not one to miss a chance, as we exchanged pleasantries and parted, he threw the line ‘Patsy, do me a bit on Porto, would love to be there but can’t be in two places at once’!

Sabaneev Memorial Dog Show - Jan 26th Moscow

Written by

Having just attended Manchester Show in snow and ice the weekend before, I think I was reasonably prepared for a trip to Moscow and temperatures of minus 15 degrees, possibly the coldest place I have been for a dog show anywhere!

A great panel of top international judges had been gathered by the organisers, headed up by Andrey Klishas (President of the Russian Hunting Federation) together with the support of Nicolas Pineiro, Katya and the hard working team.

‘ROLY’ IS THE FESTIVE SAINT

Boxer Boys Top Champions Event

Written by

The Green Isle Hotel in Clondalkin on the west outskirts of Dublin once again played host to the Dublin Dog Show Society promotion Champion of Champions final on Saturday January 5th which saw the Champion Stakes class winners from 2012 come together to challenge for the overall title and to find an overall winner 

The inimitable Hans Van Ben Berg was invited to travel from the Netherlands to judge the event and as always his quirky approach to his job was very entertaining as are his stories of previous appointments.

Written by

The Brussels Dog Show

Written by

The Brussels Dog Show has changed date a few times, from May to December, back to May and back to December. And next year year it’s on the move again, it’s moving to the autumn. Last year there were two shows, the Champion of Champions and the regular show in December.

Unfortunately the last two years, winter has struck hard at the time of the show, but it did not affect the number of entries at all. New this year was that there were no forms distributed. A simple leaflet, roll-up panels and weblinks took over, and it worked. People have accepted the new media and use it. It is convenient of course. Once registered it is very simple to fill out an online subscription form and do the payment at the same time. Less mistakes, less administration to do, less people involved to compose the catalogue, and very easy to fill out the results afterwards.

Maltese National Canine Federation December 8 & 9, 2012

Written by

It was a great pleasure to be back in Malta, and at the end of the two days I had a line up of six top quality dogs.

From the Working Group, the Alaskan Malamute, Ivramwoodland Continue The Legend, full of breed type with correct topline, sloping slightly from withers. Strongly made and holds up himself when on the move. The runner up was the GSD, Rafaye Hakan, a beautiful example of the breed, without exaggeration and skilfully handled to show his smooth outline and excellent gait. It was unfortunate that the fireworks display in the area took place whilst the group was being judged, and he became a little over excited by the noise and was not as steady as the Malamute.

Australian Welsh Corgi National 2012

Written by

I was honoured and delighted to be invited to judge the Australian Welsh Corgi National 2012. The trip started with a 23 hour plane ride, with a two-hour stop over in Abu Dhabi.

We were met in Melbourne by the President of the club Glenda Cook herself an all breed judge with a marvellous knowledge of all breeds of dogs. After  a good nights sleep  we had a day to recover  were we met up with the Sweeps stake judge Bill Sheldon from America, a dyed in the wool Corgi man who owns some very special dogs in the States, and who also has some very forthright views on how we are treated in the world of dogs.

Amsterdam... winners all round!

A personal view by Costanza Ferraris

There are dog shows that are more famous then others, there are shows that have more entries then others and there are shows that continue to be popular even in this period of crisis. Amsterdam belongs to the famous family. In 2012 they registered almost 4,500 entries! What is the recipe of this show to always remain in the Top List of the Most Important European Dog Shows after 123 years? We tried to discover its secret following exhibitors, visitors, stand holders…
