MANY THANKS to Jon-Atle Andresen, Rune Huseby, Ann Wiseman Standal, Gry Live Gulliksen and all the team at Sandefjord Hundeklubb for their great event on the 17th & 18th of January in Norway.
It was my first time visiting and judging in Norway and I found the country beautiful, the people very friendly and the dogs very good.
Norway’s biggest show weekend took place from November 14th to 16th.
The weekend started with the Norwegian Winner Show on Friday with a huge entry of over 7,000 dogs from 21 countries in 306 breeds! This was followed by the Nordic Winner on Saturday and Sunday, which, this year, was organised by the Norwegian Kennel Club, so in total the entry was 14,000 dogs in three days in this small town, Lilestrom, just 10 minutes away from Oslo in Norway.
Summer is in full swing and we are just halfway in the show season. The present leaders have some serious maths to do now as the race for Top Dogs is about to get double hot.
So far there have been 6 International All-Breed Shows in Norway, all of which entries have been extremely international, despite the country’s geographically rather isolated position, and so were the judging panels: five out of the six Best in Show judges were overseas.
