European Dog Show 2015 - Norway

Vince Hogan reports In our first look back on the European Dog Show which took place near Oslo last weekend, it seems a shame that the comments which we are hearing most are negative; many exhibitors are expressing disappointment on social media that this flag ship event seemed flat and never seemed to ‘take off’ as other top FCI events have done in the past. 


Liège 2015 Golden Dog Trophy

I wondered if the increase in entries for the Belgian dog shows had something to do with the Baby Class that is always so lovely to see. All those little soldiers lining up in the main ring and presenting themselves to the world. The catalogue of the show of Liège has several statistics, and one of them shows the number of dogs per class.

The location for the International All Breeds Dog Show on August 15th was Katariina Seaside Park located at the southernmost tip of Kotka, a 20 hectare versatile park and recreational area which enjoys active use throughout the year.

Gotha - British Herding Breeds

I was delighted to be invited back to Germany for the tenth time - this time to judge The British Herding Breeds Club Show held in Gotha, a three hour drive from Frankfurt airport. The show was so well organised with excellent size rings and perfect ring officals plus wonderful weather all made this dog showing at its very best.

Farmdogs Club Champ Show

These charming little dogs probably have their origin in the Pinscher breeds and the British white terriers that Jack Russell and Fox Terriers also originate from. There are many paintings and photographs of these farmdogs from the 1800s to early 1900s although from paintings from the 1400s you can see dogs that are similar to todays Farmdogs.
