In 2017 the European Dog Show will be held in August in Kiev, Ukraine. This year saw two International Shows take place in late April. Best in Show on Day one at the Golden Gates Show was the Samoyed owned and bred by Pedro Silva from Lisbon in Portugal and best in show day 2 was the Wire Fox terrier judged for BIS by Rony Doedijns from Holland.
The DuoCacib Brno, organised by the Czech Moravian Kennel Club, took place on the first weekend in February. The Best in Show on Saturday, judged by Vaclavik Miroslav, went to the Schnauzer (Pepper-Salt), Ave Concord Magnifique and Sundays BIS, judged by Ridarcikova Gabriele (SK), went to the Landseer, Arun Z Laderova both from the Czech Republic.
With a few more than 8,000 dogs over the two days the entry was quite comparable with the year before.
The Helsinki Double Show was a spectacular end to the chain of Scandinavian main shows. It started in Denmark in November, at Herning, then there was Oslo, or actually Lilleström in Norway where there was also the Nordic Winner show, then Swedish Winner Show at Stockholm and the last and the biggest one of them all, the Helsinki weekend.
