Big Impact in Thailand

Today we introduce a special newsletter just for reporting dog show news in Thailand. Not only will you find out about the dogs that are burning up the rings there and the people who own them, you’ll also be introduced to the history and culture of this beautiful country.

Each year in Bangkok, thousands of dogs and tens of thousands of people descend on the Impact Arena for numerous national specialties and the SmartHeart Impact International Dog Show. Keven Harris of Dog News Australia fame was lucky enough to travel there for the 2013 shows. He shares some of the history of this ancient and beautiful country, while catching us up on all the controversy as dog after dog was ejected from the rings there.

Enjoy your cyber trip to Bangkok!
