The Biggest Overseas Shows, plus Shows Closing June 19, 2013

Senior Editor Bo Bengtson takes a look at some of the world’s biggest dog shows in the second installment of his two-part feature on trends in show entries. While many nations enjoy a rich tradition of exhibiting purebred dogs, other countries have seen a more recent explosion of activity in the dog sport. Learn about some of the factors that have impacted the growth – and decline – of dog shows around the world.

The Fourth of July weekend may not be filled with as many dog show options as other summer holidays, but Senior Editor Christi McDonald presents several noteworthy clusters that expect to make the most of the Independence Day celebration. Maryland, Michigan and Massachusetts are just three states where all-breed shows are being planned. Get the details on these and other show locations throughout the U.S. that close on June 19.

Few all-breed shows in the U.S. have as many as 3,000 dogs, yet Great Britain, Scandinavia and several countries on the European continent regularly present dog shows that are two or three times as big, on occasion even larger. more
