The day started very early with the popular Junior Handling competition wherein no less than 47 countries were competing. Judge here was Mr.Tammas Jakkel from Hungary.

The main ring program started with the international Agility competition. It proved to be a very difficult and complex set up as many dogs made mistakes. Germany won the competition.

This was followed by a demonstration of the Freestyle competition winner, the very same act as the first day but it was very good, entertaining and with lots of variation, humor and innovation.

The most noisy part of the show, the Flyball competition, was next on term and it was noisy. Amazing how this sport can get the audience into such an ecstasy. Both teams were so close that the fotofinish-tape was double-checked to find out who finally won. Till then the Junior Handlers were kept in tension and had to wait for their finals.

The most popular breed in the Utility group was the Bulldog with 247 dogs entered

The Utility Group was now on term. 2960 dogs were entered. The most popular breed in this group was the Bulldog with 247 dogs entered. The Tibetan Terriers came next with 215 dogs , right before the French Bulldog that had 202 dogs. The Dalmatian are also in this group. Two Hundred of them were present.

The Toy Group was good for 2965 dogs. The Pug had 256 specimen present, the Papillon 246. Popular too of course were the Smooth and long-haired Chihuahuas, with repectively 260 and 167 entries. Best scoring breed in this group however was the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. They had to be split into dogs and bitches and were all together, 335.
The Finals are already there with only one remaining group coming up. It will probably be another crowded day in the halls. Everybody is talking about the very high number of visitors since Thursday and today it was already extremely difficult to move around.
