Double Show in Torino

The Italian Torino, or Turin as it is known in Great Britain, is the third largest and most important city in Italy, after Rome and Milan. Here is the centre of Italian car manufacturing and the main centre for Fiat. The city is in North West Italy, the capital city of the Piemonte region at the foot of the Alps, the Po River steps out from the hills to the lowlands here.

Turin is a nice city with a typical downtown, and with a lot of green areas in the city. Two shows were held here over the weekend of the 5th & 6th of July. The Mondovi International Show with 995 entries was held on Saturday, and the Torino International Show (the 81st) with 1,347 entries  was held on Sunday. The show was held in the Lignotto Fiere Oval, a huge show hall,  both sides of the hall were glass, which meant a lot of natural light in the hall, but thankfully for a July Italian day, the hall was fully air conditioned. Unfortunately there wasn’t enough carpet in the rings, some of them just had a tape of carpet and some dogs were sliding about.

What a hell of a life!!

Ponggibonsi all breeds National Championship Show

Having judged in Tuscany before I was looking forward to this appointment. Jacqui Ward was also officiating, she was warned not to be a lightweight, and she did not let me down! 

Allessio, as always, picked us up from the airport and, as always, we did not go to the hotel.

Generally the first thing you need is hotel, unpack, shower and change. What is it about airports that leaves one sticky and feeling unclean? However when you are in Allessioís charge there is always some think more interesting to do. 

So into the town centre for a fun event on behalf of the guide dogs for the blind. We witnessed a display, where the dogs were put through their paces taking their handlers over, through and around obstacles - where are the anti dog brigade at such an exhibition!

International Dog Show, Genoa

GENOA International Dog Show was on November 16 & 17, 2013. I remember being here in 1998 when the European Dog Show was held here.

If you ever come here for a dog show, you must allow yourself an extra day to have a walk round the city centre and vist the famous aquarium, it was fantastic.

The show was held at the Genoa International Fair, Fiera Del Mare. I remember the hall well as it was for the BIS ring for the European Dog Show in 1998. For this show only one hall was used. There were 1,300 entries over the two days. On the first day (Saturday), Groups 1, 3, 5, 6 and 7 were judged, and on Sunday, Groups 2, 3, 8, 9 and 10. There weren’t too many foreign exhibitors among the 1,300 entries.
