Be on time!

If you want to be sure to admire your favorite breed and not be disappointed because you just missed that special dog, come on time.

Until a few years ago, exhibitors were obliged to remain in the exhibition space until 15:00. This allowed visitors to bump into their dog favorites throughout the day. However, this rule has been abolished. This means that some of the exhibitors will return home after the inspections.

Not all varieties every day

A 1-day show will be organized on Friday 1 March. This means that on Friday all varieties that are registered are inspected. On Saturday and Sunday, on the Benelux winner, the varieties are spread over two days. So if you want to come and watch on Saturday or Sunday, pay attention to whether your favorite breed is actually shown that day.
