A polish and a Russian dog won the Best in Shows at the Slovenian show season opening shows in Ljubljana. The shows were held on 17th and 18th of January, in the Ljubljana Fair.
There were three and half halls, the half means a closed show tent, with heating (outside ot was about 5 degrees), and wood and carpeted flooring. These were the first two International Shows in Slovenia this year, during the year there will be 11. On Saturday there were 1,302 entries and 1,297 on the Sunday, one was the Crufts qualification show. Both days were had a few more entries than the previous year. On Saturday evening some club shows were held, which is very hard for everybody, dogs, exhibitors, judges, and for the reporter too, I did not wait the to end of these, I heard the last club-BIS was around 10pm.
THIS year there are to be 13 International Dog Shows in Slovenia, the first two were on the 18th & 19th of January in Ljubljana. The Sunday show was the Crufts qualification show for Slovenia this year.
Slovenia is a good country in which to hold dog shows. It is a small country, with less than three million residents, and it is easy to get to from neighbouring countries such as Italy, Croatia, Austria and Hungary.
The weekend of the 12-13 January saw more evidence of the growing numbers and success of British exhibitors abroad, when a small group of British exhibitors travelled to Slovenia to take part in three FCI championship shows including the two CACIB international shows in Ljubljana. As featured in the Our Dogs Annual 2013 (p.309).
British exhibitors have come to relish the different challenges and fun accompanying showing in Europe, and that weekend saw a whole lot of fresh challenges as they braved the winter snowy weather across Europe!
