THE International dog show was held in Salzburg again, on 27th & 28th April, after one skipping year when the Salzburg city was a host of World dog show 2012.
One of the oldest dog shows in Europe is organised by one of the oldest local Kennel Clubs in Austria (the first show was 1912!). It is interesting to note that the Club was led by an Austrian legend, a well-know all round judge Mrs Steffi Kirschbichler since 1973, and her equal known daughter, a judge herself Mrs Heidi Kirschbichler took over later on.
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.
