The Italian Newfoundland Club, the CIT – Club Italiano del Terranova – held their club show on 3rd and 4th of May, in Spresiano, at the lakeside of the Lago Le Bandie. Spresiano is in North-East Italy, about 40 kilometres from Venice. At the lakeside was a hotel and sports centre where the judges and a few exhibitors were accommodated.
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.
I VERY much enjoyed attending the Club Show of the Italian Newfoundland Club, the Societa Amatori Terranova (SATs), which was held on the 20th and 21st of April. I have missed a few of these shows recently, but was invited again to take photographs at the SAT’s Gold Cup Show.
This club is not a member of the FCI, but it has been established for a long time. This was the 24th Speciality Show and the 18th Gold Cup. There were no FCI judges, but the two men invited to judge were Mr Milan Lint, co-owner of the Pouch Cove Kennel in the USA, and Mr Luis Amador Fernandez from the Rain Coast Kennel in Spain.
