The 165th EAKC Championship Dog Show
Judged by Patsy Hollings (UK)

13 and 14 October 2018 saw the 165th EAKC Championship Dog show! It was a super event, once again blessed with rain as the show ended!

Finally I have completed the critique. My apologies for the delay. Sometimes the club’s management keeps me away from the much awaited critique. Please click here todownload the critique.

The sponsors, Top Dog, Bounty Water, Petstore Kenya, Bravo, Josera, Royal Canin, Inqaba Biotec, Bravecto and Petworld offering super offers, spectators and competitors having a great time.

250 dogs in 25 different breeds competed for the title of Best in Show and 21 Dogs tried their skill at the Obedience test though only a few passed.

Its interesting that I hear so many trainers talk of their work throughout the year, demanding differently named tests, but few step up to the plate! I hope more of you will be ready for the tests in 2019!

During the day there were practice sessions for Junior Handling and a total of 32 kids competed in Junior Handling.

Our judge, Patsy Hollings had a great time. She was impressed at the improvement in our dogs over the last 10 years, and commended the quality as being able to compete on the international stage.

Amazingly, the rain held off until the show had finished on Sunday, only a few big splashes cooling the Best in Show line ups.

Congratulations to everyone who took part and Thank you for making the show the success it was!

A special congratulations must go to:

  • BEST IN SHOW Biddy Davis’ Country bred Labrador Retriever Champion Merely Amonarch
  • RESERVE BEST IN SHOW Nadeem Butt’s German Shepherd Dog Champion Rusko vom Hühnegrab of Doeland (D)
  • THIRD BEST IN SHOW Adil & Debrah Butt’s Beagle Cherive Sylvester (ZA)
