THE International All-breed Dog Show, Estonian Winners' 2011, was held on June 4-5, 2011 in Tallinn, Estonia.

A Federated Member of FCI since 1998, the Estonian Kennel Union is probably one of the most promising kennel clubs in the post-Soviet era.  Estonians were very quick and clever in adapting the priceless experience of their close neighbours - Kennel Clubs of Finland, Denmark, Norway and Iceland. 

At present the Estonian Kennel Union unites 35 clubs and 1,600 individuals, all of whom are involved in breeding purebred dogs in Estonia. 

Estonian Kennel Union also publishes a magazine, KOER (Dog), and annually arranges 35 shows, including five International all-breed shows.

 The Estonian Winners’ Show was the first show in Eastern Europe to become an overseas Crufts qualifying show.

 Martin Groeser's BIS winner out of the overall entry of 2,631 dogs became the 18 month old American Akita male, Nekmar Express Yourself, owned by Laura and Hanna Kukkola. This dog lives in Finland, but was bred in Croatia by Martin Nekic and Ivana Frkic and directly descends out of two UK imports from the Redwitch kennel.

This promising youngster also has the title of the Top American Akita 2010 in Finland and obtained Crufts qualification with his win in Estonia.
