Geneva is the second largest city in Switzerland after Zürich and it was here that the greatest dog show in Switzerland was held.

Over the full show weekend, from November 15th to the 17th, four shows were held. On Friday there was a National Show with about 1,200 entries, held in the morning, and an International Show was held in the afternoon and evening with 1,613 entries. On Saturday there were 1,715 entries and for the Sunday show, 1,576 entries. The Geneva Show was also a Crufts qualification show. The show was held in one hall of the Palexpo, the Geneva exhibition halls.

I liked this venue very much, there were a lot of parking spaces under the halls, and the next hall. All the shows were held in one hall, with 34 rings, main ring, about 15-20 trade stands, buffet, office, etc. The organisation was almost perfect, the writing of judge reports and results were online, if anyone would like to see the full results go to https://www.onlinedogshows.eu. The main ring fully run by the Czech P1 Dog Show company, who made the full lights, music, video, live stream of the main ring.

The exhibitors were from many countries (more than 20, I think) the foreign judges of the show were:

Adrian Landarte (UY), Rafael Garcia Parrondo (ES), Fabio Amorim (BR), Hans Stigt (NL), Gerardo A. Paolucci (ARG), Orit Naevo (ISR), Chi Ejima Yamakado (JP), Michael Harms (D), D. Krishnamurthy (IND), Zuzana Brotánková (CZ), Tiina Taulos (SF), Carmen Navarro Guisado (E), Carla Molinari (P), Boris Chapiro (F), Rune Fangerström (SF), Petru Munzeanu (RO), Alpay Özkan (TR), Christine Coppel (FR), Antoaneta Penkova (BG), Tamas Jakkel (H), Einar Paulsen (DK), The Friday International Show BOG winners were Fl Bouvier, English Bulldog, Scottish Terrier, Min Wire Dachshund, Pomeranian, Basset Hound, Bourbonnais Pointing Dog, Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Min Poodle, Irish Wolfhound.

The BIS was judged by Fabio Amorim (BR), BIS was the Scottish Terrier, Filisite Brash Beauty Never Lies, bred and owned by Valentina Popova from Russia. Res BIS was the Basset Hound, Jiminy Du Clos De Rivensol, owned by Catherine Boisvineau from France. 3rd was the Poodle Medium Black, Lorenzo-N-Deigini, owned by Didier Coton from France.

Saturday’s Group winners were: OES, Bernese Mountain Dog, Yorkshire Terrier, Standard Smooth Dachshund, Siberian Husky, Beagle, Gordon Setter, American Cocker Spaniel (but the AMCSP was bred by L. Pichard, so by involvment he stepped back from the BIS judging), Tibetian Terrier, Whippet.

The Best was chosen by Carla Molinari (P). The BIS was the OES, Bottom Shaker The Greatest Picture, bred and owned by Jozsef Koroknai (H), presented by Zsolt Hanó. The Res BIS was the Beagle, Golden Swissline Candy Crush, owned by Stefanie & Michael Geiger (CH).

The third day, Sunday, the Group winners were the Australian Shepherd, Russian Black Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Kaninchen Wire Dachshund, Pomeranian, Beagle, English Setter, English Cocker Spaniel, Shih Tzu, Afghan.

The BIS was judged by Tamas Jakkel, the new President of the FCI, who gave the BOS to the Australian Shepherd, Allmark Vanity Fayre, owned by Ludovic Gerona from France.

The Res BIS went to the Beagle, Golden Swissline Candy Crush, owned by Stefanie & Michael Geiger from Switzerland. BIS 3rd was the Kaninchen Wire Dachshund, Dargon Boy Del Wanhelsing, bred and owned by Gabriel Pascarella from Italy. And finally, at the last program (about 7pm Sunday) the Super BIS was chosen by Gerardo A. Paolucci from Argentina, who brought a real authentic Argentine poncho for the Super BIS winner. The Scottie, the Bobtail and the Aussie competed for this.

But finally the poncho went to the handler of the OES, Zsolt Hano, the Super BIS became the Old English Sheepdog, Bottom Shaker The Greatest Picture, bred and owned by Jozsef Koroknai from Hungary.
