3rd to 5th February 2012

On 3, 4 and 5 February, the first dog show of the New Year, the “35th scale der Kempen”  took place in Eindhoven where the dogs were in the spotlight! Eindhoven is situated in the south of the country and in the Netherlands is associated with the 'lights'. 

This nickname for Eindhoven is thanks to the establishment of the factory of the Philips brand. It all started years ago with Philips to develop the light bulb, hence the name 'City of Light
With 2,339 registered dogs it was a popular show. Despite the economic situation, there were 230 dogs registered more than in 2011, a great result.
The dogs came from 20 countries on two continents. Because of some illness of some judges and the higher entry, there were some movements of judges around certain breeds.
With the first cold spell in Holland since 1997, with an outside temperature of -15c, it was very cold but that was not evident in the emergence of exhibitors. Jan Coppens, President, on behalf of the organising exhibition commission, thanked the main sponsor Bento Kronen, plus co-sponsor Jean Peau and all others who contributed to our show.
The Group and final inspections in the main ring were commented by Mr Jan Coppens and on Sunday took Mr Erwin Wieldraaijer the BIS judge.
The winner of Group 2, a Bull Mastiff of only 23 months old, Social Giant Thunder, owner A. C. Bolle, took the BIS title and Reserve BIS was the American Akita, Ruth Dales U Can’t Touch This, owned by M. Huls
