Finnish dog show people are used to spending Easter at Imatra in south eastern Finland. Because it is not far from the Russian border, there are always also many Russian exhibitors.


The traditional Turku January International Show was named Top Dog Show this year. Every second year this group of local clubs hold Top Dog Show, while every second year another combination of clubs have a Winter Dog Show.


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.


The outdoor show season starts at the beginning of May, but the Tampere International Show on the second weekend of May was still held indoors. The spring has been late this year, the weather has been very cold and we have got snow and hail even in the south of Finland.


At the Imatra International Show on the 26th & 27th of March, with an entry 3,500, Best in Show under BIS Judge Leni Finne from Finland and Group Judge György Tesics was the American Cocker Spaniel - Very Vigie Huluberlulu, bred by Laurent Pichard and owned by Sanna Vartiainen, Heidi Kangas and Terhi Korhonen.


It's hard to imagine a more picturesque setting than the venue for the 21st “Rose of Kotka” in Finland. The location for the International All Breeds Dog Show on August 15th was Katariina Seaside Park located at the southernmost tip of Kotka, a 20 hectare versatile park and recreational area which enjoys active use throughout the year. 


Have you ever been to a dog show where more or less everyone seems to be ‘in the pink’ or at the very least wearing something pink about their person? Well that’s an experience many dog people enjoyed in Helsinki recently as the bi annual Eukanuba Summer Show took place over three days just outside the city outskirts.
