Best In Show Daily provided readers with complete coverage of the 2012 World Dog Show in Salzburg, Austria. Three days of international competition were presented as never before by some of the dog world’s most seasoned reporters. Our experienced team of writers, bloggers, photographers and web experts kept you up-to-date as more than 18,000 dogs from 56 countries gathered to compete in a celebration of the purebred dog.
We introduced readers to the enormous event sponsored by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale and orchestrated by the Austrian Kennel Club in the birthplace of Mozart. Each of the 10 Group winners was presented with photos, as were all of the Group-placing dogs. We reported on the Best Junior, Puppy, Veteran, Brace and Group winners each day, and we took you behind the scenes with candid shots of many of the extraordinary dogs and their handlers. The broadest social media platforms, including Twitter and Facebook, kept you connected – right through the crowning of this year’s winner, the American-bred Saluki, ‘Harley.’
