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.

Eindhoven Dog Show 2014

The show is held in the centre of Eindhoven and the hall consists of two floors. The railway and bus station are right next door, and there is lots of parking nearby, so it's a good show for everyone and easy to get to.  

The second floor is obviously a challenge for the organisation, after all, people not only have their dogs with them, but also show trollies, grooming tables, chairs and all sorts of other dog stuff.  However, no problems to report.

The 34th Brabants Rashonden Festival

It was a great honour to be invited to judge at the 34th Brabants Rashonden Festival, organised by the Waalwijk Club. This show had a wonderful atmosphere, a hard working and innovative committee and a number of generous sponsors, including Paul & Mariel from Jean Peau, who are regular standholders at Crufts.

This Club has over 900 members and organise a lot of events over the year for their members including ring training, and before Group judging commenced each day, they made presentations to members who had crowned Champions and Junior Champions in the previous year.

Amsterdam Winners 2013

The 124th Amsterdam All Winners dog show was itself a winner in deepest December at the Rai Centre in Holland, with all the Christmas trimmings!

For anyone who does not know the European scene or Holland specifically, this is their Crufts dog show, their Westminster…the biggest they hold in the Netherlands. Normally held over two days in late November, the organisers decided to move from their traditional date to accommodate an extra days showing and in order to facilitate a transition to a better hall. The extra day became the National Show on Friday offering CACIB’s or FCI versions of Challenge Certificates in the UK. The move to the better hall was from the older Europa Hall into the more modern side of the Rai. (Pronounced ‘Rye’…) This typical Expo or event centre is on the outskirts of the historical city of Amsterdam, obviously known for its infamous ‘Red Light’ district and liberal attitude to smoking a certain type of plant, but equally one of the great European capitals with superb sights and culture if you ever want to mix dog showing and an interesting weekend away.
