The Philippine Canine Club, Inc. (PCCI) once again has conducted its very successful Philippine Circuit Show for 2019. The shows were held in conjunction with its institutional partners, the Department of Tourism and the Department of Agriculture. PCCI have now been hosting this show for seven years. It is one of the biggest if not the biggest dog show in Asia and is now one of the most well-known dog show events in the world, where the quality of the dogs entered is very high. The Circuit Show helps local breeders and exhibitors in assessing and gauging the quality of their own breeding programs against the quality of the foreign entries and hopefully they will further improve their breeding stock and become even more competitive against the best dogs in the world. With hundreds of foreigners coming to our country to participate and to watch this event, the Circuit Show does not only promote the purebred dog sport and preservation breeders, it also promotes the Philippines to the rest of the world

With a total entry of 570 individual dogs from 22 different countries (including the Philippines), this show was a huge success and the show committee was pleased. Of these, there were 121 foreign entries. Over the twelve shows, there was a total entry of 6,840. The total of the international entries was a bit lower than previous years, due in part to new restrictions applied by some carriers for the transport of Brachycephalic breeds.

The major awards at days end were made for:

BEST IN SHOW

BEST JUNIOR IN SHOW

BEST PUPPY IN SHOW

BEST BABY PUPPY IN SHOW

BEST VETERAN IN SHOW

BEST PHILIPPINE-BORN IN SHOW

There were Championship Titles offered each day for:

a) FCI International Champion

b) Asia Pacific Champion

c) South East Asia Champion

d) Philippine Grand Champion

e) Philippine Champion

f) Philippine Junior Champion

g) Philippine Winner

h) Philippine Derby Winner

The German Wirehaired Pointer made its debut for the first time at these Circuit Shows, and also in the Philippines.

Although the entries were only slightly down, there was a significant improvement in overall quality of the entries. For example, the British Bulldog, Ch. Cappelli Bulls-Argentina Rodo, who was 3rd BIS at the 2018 World Dog Show and is also a BIS winner in the United States.

There were many top dogs at the 2019 show. The Medium Poodle from China (won 5 Best In Shows), the Bulldog from Korea (won 4 Best In Shows), a Miniature Poodle from Japan (1 Best in Show), a Pomeranian from Russia (1 Best In Show), a Welsh Corgi from Korea (1 Best In Show).

For most if not everyone in attendance–judges, exhibitors, visitors alike–the most anticipated event is the party after the final judging on the Sunday night when everyone enjoys traditional Philippine hospitality with endless food, beverages, dancing, and occasional entertainment from anyone willing to pick up the microphone.

We look forward to 2020 and a bigger, even better event!
