Bring your dog's vaccination card

All dogs need the vaccination card with the valid rabies vaccination. The dogs must be vacci-nated against rabies at least three weeks before the event (bring vaccination card/EU pet passport).

The rabies vaccination is valid for 12 months from the day of vaccination. If a longer validity is to be claimed, this must be proven by entering the validity in the vaccination certificate or in the EU pet passport in the field "Valid until". If a dog vaccinated against rabies is revacci-nated against rabies before the end of the validity of the existing vaccination, the so-called 3-week period does not apply. In the case of a first vaccination, the dog must have been at least 3 months old at the time of the vaccination and the vaccination must have taken place at least 21 days ago at the time of the event.

Online catalogue (free of charge)

In accordance with FCI Show Regulations, the online catalogue will be available from 7.00 am on 22 October. No printed catalogues will be offered at the show.

Recreation areas for exhibitors

The spacious grounds offer sufficient recreation areas as well as exercise areas for the dogs. You are allowed to set up tents or the like (maximum size 2 x 2 m) as weather protection in the marked areas (three ring sides) near the rings, provided that these can be quickly dismantled after your dog has been judged. In addition, we have designated staging areas in the peripheral areas of the indoor area where tents with a size of 3 x 3 m may be set up. The sand track may not be walked on.

Procedure in the ring

If necessary, the classes will be divided into smaller units so that sufficient spacing is pos-sible during the evaluation in the stall and the gait test. In large classes it is not necessary for all dogs to be in the ring together, not even for the jump-off. It is at the judge's discretion whether he wishes to palpate the dogs. The same applies to the bite check, which the judge should carry out without contact with the dog, i.e. the exhibitor shows the dog's teeth.


There are numerous camper pitches available. The price is 15,00 EUR per day (incl. electricity and waste disposal).



The association's own catering facilities will be open during the event. Access is only possible for those who have already passed the ticket control.
