The Brussels Dog Show

Written by Administrator

The Brussels Dog Show has changed date a few times, from May to December, back to May and back to December. And next year year it’s on the move again, it’s moving to the autumn. Last year there were two shows, the Champion of Champions and the regular show in December.

Unfortunately the last two years, winter has struck hard at the time of the show, but it did not affect the number of entries at all. New this year was that there were no forms distributed. A simple leaflet, roll-up panels and weblinks took over, and it worked. People have accepted the new media and use it. It is convenient of course. Once registered it is very simple to fill out an online subscription form and do the payment at the same time. Less mistakes, less administration to do, less people involved to compose the catalogue, and very easy to fill out the results afterwards.


It was a great pleasure to be back in Malta, and at the end of the two days I had a line up of six top quality dogs.

From the Working Group, the Alaskan Malamute, Ivramwoodland Continue The Legend, full of breed type with correct topline, sloping slightly from withers. Strongly made and holds up himself when on the move. The runner up was the GSD, Rafaye Hakan, a beautiful example of the breed, without exaggeration and skilfully handled to show his smooth outline and excellent gait. It was unfortunate that the fireworks display in the area took place whilst the group was being judged, and he became a little over excited by the noise and was not as steady as the Malamute.


I was honoured and delighted to be invited to judge the Australian Welsh Corgi National 2012. The trip started with a 23 hour plane ride, with a two-hour stop over in Abu Dhabi.

We were met in Melbourne by the President of the club Glenda Cook herself an all breed judge with a marvellous knowledge of all breeds of dogs. After  a good nights sleep  we had a day to recover  were we met up with the Sweeps stake judge Bill Sheldon from America, a dyed in the wool Corgi man who owns some very special dogs in the States, and who also has some very forthright views on how we are treated in the world of dogs.


Amsterdam... winners all round!

A personal view by Costanza Ferraris

There are dog shows that are more famous then others, there are shows that have more entries then others and there are shows that continue to be popular even in this period of crisis. Amsterdam belongs to the famous family. In 2012 they registered almost 4,500 entries! What is the recipe of this show to always remain in the Top List of the Most Important European Dog Shows after 123 years? We tried to discover its secret following exhibitors, visitors, stand holders…

Helsinki Winner

Written by Administrator

Best In Show at the Helsinki Winner last weekend was the Portuguese Water Dog Light My Fire Da Pedra Da Anixa owned by Laura Browne & Isabel Santos (Portugal), and handled by Marta Flores, judged by Tamas Jakkel (Hungary) far left, next to Kari Jarvinen, Chairman of the Show Committee.

 


The Slovak Bobtail, Bearded Collie and Border Collie Special CAC Club Show was held on 24th November 2012.

It was an honour and pleasure for me to be invited to judge this clubs show. The Club covers just the three breeds, expecting an entry of 50-60 dogs, all were delighted with the entry of 75 dogs - 37 Border Collies, 24 Bearded Collies and 14 Bobtails. I’m told usually only three maybe four Bobtails enter this show, this time entries came from Hungary, the Czech Republic and Austria. I was well pleased with the quality in all three breeds and the depth of quality in the Beardies was really impressive with not a bad one present!


Malta Canine Society Ch Show

The show was well supported and held in a good size sports hall with an excellent, carpeted ring and had a great ringside. Organisation was impeccable.

The gundog group was won by the Cocker Spaniel, Asquanne Giraldi, a black dog of only 16 months, he has the most handsome, masculine head and is so well put together throughout and shows it on the move, he looked a picture!


Kortrijk

Written by Administrator

IT ALL started in 1964, 49 shows ago, in Menen, a small town in the neighbourhood of Kortrijk. Now it is, without any doubt, the number one show in Flanders and the strongest rival of the national show of Belgium in Brussels. It is the most famous and best known in Belgium, but also in Europe.


The Eukanuba World Challenge (EWC) has enjoyed a strong connection with some of the world’s top winning dogs. It has aptly earned an enviable reputation in the six years since its inception.  Former EWC representatives, breeders and exhibitors have enjoyed remarkable show ring and breeding success with their dogs, this year is no exception the EWC representatives have won major accolades at prominent shows, some since competing in the EWC and vice versa.  

Some of this year’s qualified dogs are BIS Winners having won at the FCI World Dog Show, the 3 FCI Section Shows, the AKC Eukanuba National Championships (AENC), Westminster and Crufts. They will be competing in this prestigious event that has found some of the most spectacular dogs winning the title Eukanuba World Challenge Champion plus the very generous prize money of $10,000.  $3,000 & $2,000 prize money is awarded to the two runners up respectively.

Written by Administrator
