There was a slight drop in the total number of entries, but only slightly from 5,487 last year to 5,330 this time round. But still this is a fantastic number for a country so small as Luxemburg.
It is relatively easy to become Champion of Luxemburg, but is that really so? For certain less popular breeds maybe, where only a handful of dogs are entered. But winning in a breed like Chihuahua, Golden Retriever, Rhodesian Ridgeback or Cavalier King Charles is not that easy, as in those breeds competition is strong. And that has not only to do with the number of entries in the breed but also because in Luxemburg they know how to assemble an exquisite selection of judges.
I will never understand why the autumn show still remains less popular than the spring show, but I think that a lot of Kennel Clubs envy the Luxembourg Kennel Club for their two successful shows every year.
This show had only 36 dogs less than last year but compared to the spring show, there is still a big gap of 45% and that is a big difference.
