Eukanuba World Challenge To Pause in 2018, Return in 2019

The Eukanuba World Challenge, one of the world’s most truly renowned and international dog show events, will pause for 1 year and come back in 2019 to celebrate its 11th edition @ Crufts 2019.

Supported by the world’s leading canine organizations, ‘Federation Cynologique Internationale’ (FCI) and ‘The Kennel Club’ (UK), the ‘Eukanuba World Challenge’ is a unique competition designed to bring together the top winning dogs from around the world and celebrate the magnificence of pure breed dogs. Participating dogs are nominated by their national Kennel Clubs or qualified at some of the world’s most prestigious shows, and compete for the highly coveted title ‘Eukanuba World Challenge Champion’ and a € 7,500 prize.

The very first Eukanuba World Challenge back in 2007, supported by the American Kennel Club (AKC), was held in Long Beach, USA, and then it moved successfully to Orlando, USA, in 2011 which became its home for three years.

In 2014, the prestigious event moved across the Atlantic into Europe where it joined the world famous Amsterdam Winners’ Show for two years, to finally celebrate its 10th anniversary, at Crufts 2017, with the support from UK Kennel Club.

In November 2017, the World Dog Show will take place in Germany (Leipzig) and Eukanuba will be the main sponsor, supporting our long time partners VDH and FCI.
Just 9 months later the WDS 2018 in Amsterdam will take place where Eukanuba and Spectrum Brands will be supporting another of our long-time partner`s The Dutch Kennel Club (RvB)

After extensive discussions we came to the conclusion it was better to pause the EWC for one year and let all dogs to prepare and participate at the two great World dog show events in Leipzig and Amsterdam.

The Eukanuba World Challenge will take place again in 2019, in the magnificent main ring of Crufts and the competition will continue to be supported by the FCI and the UK Kennel Club. The Kennel Club has kindly agreed that all qualified dogs that would have competed in the Eukanuba World Challenge final in 2018 and that meet the Kennel club rules will automatically be able to enter and compete in Crufts 2018 (entry criteria and fees will apply),

Mike Bloxsome, Influencer Leader Europe for Eukanuba, said
“I am excited to be given the responsibility by Spectrum Brands to build on the legacy left by Jose Luis Ibanez and I hope with the support of my European colleagues that we will build and enhance on his great work.

The 10th Eukanuba World Challenge which was held at Crufts 2017 was deemed such a huge success that it will return to Crufts in 2019 and, once again, we are so excited to hold our prestigious event at the world’s greatest dog show”.
