Brabo 2017 Featured

Written by
Best in Show at the Brabo 2017 show was the Group 9 winner, the Miniature Poodle, Curlfinch Jakira, owned by Kroes - Vink Corrie. Group Judge for Group 9 and also the BIS Judge was Mrs Degryze (Belgium).

It looks like the organisers of the Antwerp dog show, called Brabo dog show, decided to no longer have 50 per cent Belgian judges. Two years ago there was a very high entry of over 2,400 dogs, probably as it was a Crufts qualifier.

Luxembourg Spring Show Featured

Best in Show at the Luxembourg springs how was the winner of Group 9, the Smooth Chihuahua, Dartan The Valiant Aladar, owned by Sandra Ludmir from Spain. BIS Judge was Mrs Liliane De Ridder-Onghena (Belgium).

With almost the very same number of entries as last year, the spring show of Luxembourg seems to remain high on the list of everyone who wants to start a champion career for their dog. Last years total number of entries was 4,560, and this year it was 4,551.

AKC judges approval process

Our Dogs was interested in a letter published recently in USA's dog magazine the Canine Chronicle. The American Kennel Club introduced a revolutionary - rather than evolutionary - new process for judges two years ago, which includes a Canine College, Mentoring, Workshop Study Groups and Judges Education Coordinators. We will not know for some time how successful the Judges Competency Framework introduced by our Kennel Club will be, but perhaps during the pilot stage of its introduction, we can learn from the AKC experience.

Mexico Champions of Champion Featured

Written by
Winner of the Tournament of Champions in Mexico was the Afghan Hound, Brilliant Nigh Jp Dear Zeus owned and handled by Juan Miranda Saucedo. This was judged on a points system with the final judge being Jan Reital from the USA, pictured here third from left with the organisers, fellow judges and sponsors.The event was part of the National Specialties Week organised by the Mexican Kennel Federation.

Mexican Specialties! And not a wall in sight!

When you tell people you are going to Mexico, you get the usual comments about beans and sombreros. More recently the jokes concern walls and Donald Trump, but folks need to sit up and take a real hard look at what happens down Mexico way, as the Federacion Canofila Mexicana (the FCM) sure know how to put on a good event! I know it’s not easy to take a quick trip over from the UK, in fact about 12 hours from Heathrow and a bit less going back….but it’s great to see how they do dog shows on the other side of the world.
