Dear dog fancier,
We are delighted at the prospect of welcoming you to the World Dog Show in Amsterdam!
A city buzzing with attractions such as the monumental Rijksmuseum and equally renowned Van Gogh Museum, but also numerous hidden treasures such as the Woods (Amsterdamse Bos) which is ideal for dog walking.
So much in a country where tradition and folklore exist alongside new technologies and contemporary architecture.
The Netherlands is famous for its love of raw herring, windmills and brightly-coloured tulip fields.
But equally well known for its innovative and cutting-edge organisations such as Philips and their superior medical systems and lighting, Bugaboo’s iconic pushchairs, Rituals’ fragrant bath and beauty products, and the virtually indispensible TomTom satellite navigation systems. All from Dutch soil.
The Dutch Kennel Club (Raad van Beheer) is proud to host the World Dog Show from 9-12 August 2018 based on the theme ‘Show the world your talent’.
A unique, four-day, all-dog event showcasing almost every canine breed with exhibitors from all over the world, as well as numerous other activities concerning dogs in all aspects.
Check out our website news-items and updates and/or follow us on social media. On behalf of the Dutch Kennel Club I would like to invite you to the World Dog Show 2018 to celebrate with me the very best of the international canine world. And while you’re here, why not make the most of a perfect opportunity to explore Amsterdam and our country, the Netherlands!
