I was honoured to be invited to judge for the VDH at Dortmund Europasieger and International Shows. There was an entry of 8,400 dogs from many countries and a good selection of specialist judges on the Panel. The Show was well supported by the public with lots of very busy trade stands in almost 3 of the 8 halls. For entertainment in the Main Ring there were dancing dogs, agility dogs and even a magician with his dogs.
Group Judging started at 3pm and I was delighted to see the Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier win The Breeders Group and Overall Winner Group 3. I had a lovely entry of Group 9 breeds and nice to see my Pug and Maltese Best of Breed winners shortlisted in the Group. I look forward to my trip to the World Show in Leipzig and I know The VDH will have a wonderful Show.
