What a great show this was, and what an honour and privilege it was to be invited to judge this Spaniel Speciality show in Hyvinkaa of the 5th of October.

The Finnish Akita Speciality Club Show was held on the 1st September in Hollola, about an hours drive from Helsinki. The entry was a superb 110 dogs, believed to be a record for an Akita Breed show in an FCI country. Dogs attended from Finland, Norway, Sweden, Estonia and also Russia.
