Germany finds itself in the spotlight this year with a series of big shows culminating in the biggest FCI show of the year with the World Dog Show in Leipzig in November 2017 being organised by the German Kennel Club, otherwise known as the VDH.
EIGHT Thousand seven hundred and seventy-one dogs from 35 countries attended the VDH-European Winner & International Exhibition 2016 in Dortmund last weekend. The show had a very healthy gate of 42,000 visitors who attended the show on one of the best weekends of the year in sunny conditions of 25 degrees.
Germany holds a number of Championship shows every year, of these, the Dortmund shows stand out, these are double shows, two International Shows in three days in parallel and OUR DOGS is the International Media Partner for both these famous events. On the third weekend of October, on 16-18th, the Autumn Dortmund called Hund un Pferd (Dog and Horse),
I was delighted to be invited back to Germany for the tenth time - this time to judge The British Herding Breeds Club Show held in Gotha, a three hour drive from Frankfurt airport. The show was so well organised with excellent size rings and perfect ring officals plus wonderful weather all made this dog showing at its very best.
