Norwich Terrier Club Open Show - Finland

I was very honoured and privileged to be invited to judge Norwich Terriers at the combined Finnish Norfolk & Norwich Club Open Show in March this year.
I set off early on the Saturday morning from Manchester and arrived in Helsinki around 3.30pm Finnish time. I made my way to the hotel, 10 minutes away from the airport, and awaited my co judge, Dot Britten who was to judge Norfolks at the same show.

International Show, Reykjavik

DOG judges are eager travellers, and Iceland is considered one of the most desirable European destinations for judging appointments. Thanks to the young age of the Icelandic KC and a small population, there are only four dog shows a year organised in this mystic and distant country. So to get a judging appointment there is quite an honour for a judge.

This show was  an International Show which took place in Reykjavik on 22nd and 23rd of February, 2014, and there were just six judges on duty: Kenneth Edh, Kurt Nielsen and Benny from Sweden, Arne Foss from Norway, Francesco Cochetti from Italy and myself from Slovenia.

Gent - two day show success

As long as I can remember the show in Gent has always been a one day show, unique in its concept, interesting for the visitor who can see all the breeds on one day, but not that interesting for everyone.

There is without a doubt more advantages than disadvantages to spread a show over two days. Gent was also a two yearly show. I wonder if that will change in the near future. It would be nice, as Gent is popular and has enough potential to do it. This was Gent’s 45th show and probably the start of a new era. Unfortunately, the Honorary President, Mr Pierre Verborgh, could not enjoy the results of the changes he agreed upon as he died less than three weeks before the show.

Martinidogshow

The Martinidogshow in Groningen in The Netherlands is traditionally held the weekend before Crufts, and is therefore a show that lots of exhibitors from Scandinavia, Germany and Eastern Europe go to on their way to Birmingham.

The show has a very interesting judge’s list with many international specialist judges and a lot of foreign exhibitors; from England Mrs Marilyn Prior, Mr Ray Strudwick and Mr Hugh Jones were invited to judge Labradors, Golden Retrievers, Shetland Sheepdogs and Bearded Collies.

This year was the 54th International Show organised by the Northern Canine Association, Noorder Kynologen Club, one of the oldest clubs in the Netherlands.

Graz International Dog Show

A wonderful opening of the show season in Austria with one of the best organised shows in central Europe in Graz. Held at the same time of Crufts weekend, it was not easy to make the show as usual, but they have managed to keep the number of entries - over 2,000 dogs were entered.

It has been arranged by Ulf Fjelsted Jorgensen every year since 1981, with good help from his wife, Lotte Jorgensen.

Malta Canine Society Winter Champ Show

15th & 16th February 2014
 

Such an unexpected call on Tuesday asking was I available to judge on the following weekend in Malta due to Tom Mather being unable to fulfill his appointment. My reply, Yes, Yes, Yes!

This was my third time judging on this beautiful Mediterranean Island. My thanks to the Officers and Committee for this invitation and they all send their best wishes to Tom Mather and hope that he makes a good recovery and look forward to him judging for them next year.
