The Bulldog World Congress comes to Mexico City It is aways a pleasure to attend dog shows in Mexico and when the opportunity to attend the WBCF extravaganza presented opportunity, we jumped at it! The show was held on the fantastic grounds of the FCM campus in Mexico City.
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.
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.
It looks like the organisers of the Antwerp dog show, called Brabo dog show, decided to no longer have 50 per cent Belgian judges. Two years ago there was a very high entry of over 2,400 dogs, probably as it was a Crufts qualifier.
With almost the very same number of entries as last year, the spring show of Luxembourg seems to remain high on the list of everyone who wants to start a champion career for their dog. Last years total number of entries was 4,560, and this year it was 4,551.
