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 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.
