ON THE weekend of 3rd & 4th November Dordrecht KC held the International Dog Show at Bleiswijk for the 15th time. Almost 2,000 dogs were entered.
Best in Show was the Kaninchen Dachshund, Grandgable MS Just A Teas, owned by Philipp Meijer and Reserve Best in Show was a formidable English Cocker Spaniel, Nickle and Dime’s Moskow Night, bred and owned by Gerda van Empel. BIS 3 belonged to the Bullmastiff, Leatherneck N’Rodels Road Warrior, owned by W. Bus and D. Cominotto.
As well as the great success of the participants in the main ring, there was an extensive focus on future handlers too.
Both days, Wendy van Oosten took her time to judge the Junior Handling. On Saturday, as well as on Sunday, it was 16-year-old Naomi van Mourik, Romania’s representative at Crufts in March this year, who won the Junior Handling Competition.
Also her brother, just 13 years old, did well with a 4th place on Saturday and a 3rd place on Sunday.
Both competitors will make their appearance in the Grand Finale at the Amsterdam Winner Show.
