Europe Dog Show – Poland


Europe’s most important show (after the World Dog Show, which is often held in Europe, but not every year) the Europe Dog Show, has large entries–in lighter years 7-8,000, and 12-14,000 dogs in stronger years.

The Big E – It’s All About Selection


Okay, ladies, if I refer to “LBDs”, I am sure you know precisely what I mean. For the uninitiated, “LBDs” are little black dresses. Our closets have several at any given time. There is often an occasion that requires us to reach into the closet or to run out to shop for one.

These are kind of like a match show – less formal, lots of people new to the sport, many who’ve been around for years, and a handful who are just after the ribbons, not the learning opportunity or the chance to have fun with their dog.
