Why should I come to dog show Amsterdam Winner

Starting with, the 126th International Dog Show Amsterdam Winner 2015 and Holland Cup 2015 took place in the RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre, one of the largest show venues of Netherlands, from 11 to 13 December 2015 in Amsterdam.

The annual dog show Amsterdam Winner has a large significance in the dogs’ world as for kennel clubs and breeders as for people connected with pet service or pet business.

The special significance in the annual schedule Amsterdam dog show acquired in 2014, when the Eukanuba World Challenge the European premier took place - the show, which unites best dog from all over the world and also the winners of the Crufts, World and European dog shows. (List of participants Eukanuba World Challenge 2014)

Jose Luis Ibanez, EWC Show Chairman stated: “We are delighted to maintain the same concept of lining-up the world’s “Best of the Best” dogs. It was proven last year that this competition in high on the breeders’ list and we are deeply proud of the support we received from the breeder community. This gives us a lot of energy to improve the show, again and again”. (List of participants Eukanuba World Challenge 2015)

And as Jose Luis said, we actually watched the world’s “Best of the Best”. Although the show is reckoned to be international and during the magnificent ceremony participants were coming in the ring with national flags and were accompanied by the solemn music, the most biggest number of applause and screams where giving to Crufts 2015 winner – Scottish Terrier from US - To Russia With Love “Knopa” and WDS 2015 in Milan winner - Bearded Collie from Russia - Ops I Did It Again Del Cuore Impavido “Rony”

By the way, the participant of Eukanuba World Challenged, who represented the Netherlands, Anneke Otto with her Bearded Collie Beardie Connections Kenji became the winner of the Holland Cup 2015. And the BIS winner of the Amsterdam Winner Show 2015 Anette Dyrén from Sweden with her Flat-Coated Retriever Castlerock Simply Magic claimed that her main aim was participation in Eukanuba show and she took part in Amsterdam Winner only by chance.

Demonstration Rings

Generally speaking, such a huge dog show is like a great festival although sometimes one might call it a “crazy house” (in good sense). Besides dozens of rings where dogs are being judged from morning till lunch, in centre halls were demonstration rings that are more appealing to commoners: families with children, students, schoolchildren and gapers. In these rings one can see how service and guard dogs work, how dogs dance, catch Frisbee, skate, hunt, or, for example, to see the shepherd dog on duty chasing ducks along the ring and actually having such a “face” that you might think it is going to eat them

Zoo services

The dog show will be also interesting for serious people who are making money. If on the enormous dog food market appeared some newcomers you will find their stands on the show. The places for world wide known pet food are the most colorful and bright.

But the more appealing are stands for grooming saloons where you can visit master classes for dog grooming or buy a highly sophisticated dog brush. I especially liked the pavilion where the professional painter penciled portraits of pets and their owners. The most interesting moment was when this painter was doing a picture of a group of Saarloos Wolfdogs, carefully looking at 3 seeming the same wolf muzzles trying to find even subtle differences to make the picture perfect. Also it is important to mention pavilions with different kennels where one can get all the information about a certain breed and talk to the breeder.

To sum up, there are many things to do on the show even if you are just a visitor.

And now lets move to final part – to show results.
