The first Gala dinner in honor of the winners of the Best Russian Dog ranking On February 7, 2018 a grand event took place at Four Seasons Hotel Moscow. The winners of the ranking Best Russian Dog-2017 were invited on the Gala dinner to celebrate their victory.

This is the first event of the ranking, in which the best breeders, handlers and dogs of the country, eminent veterinarians, rescuers of the Ministry of Emergency Measures and volunteers-cynologists, representatives of shelters for dogs and cynological centers participated.

The solemn ceremony consisted of three parts: rewarding the winners in the Best Russian Dog-2017 ranking, the winners in the category "With All Heart" and in the nomination "Best of the Best". During all evening, the solemn atmosphere of the holiday was supported by the stars of the Russian stage - Dmitry Galikhin, Natalia Manulik and Dmitry Nesterov.

In the first part, 10 dogs ranking first in Best Russian Dog in the breed groups by the results of 2017 and also the dog, which received the title "Pride of Russia" because of his rich exhibition experience were awarded to the statuettes engraved with their names.

The second part, named "With All Heart", was devoted to the dogs that play an important role in our society, and people who have connected their professional and personal life with cynology. The Best Veterinarians of Russia, specializing in the diagnosis of hip dysplasia, the emergency volunteer engaged in search-and-rescue dogs preparation and the development of the cynologists-volunteers organization, the talented guide dog, the famous dog therapist and the rescue dog involved in numerous rescue operations.

The organizing committee paid special attention to the shelters, which for several years have been providing qualified assistance to homeless and disabled dogs. In the third and final part, the award was given to one of the most experienced and award-winning handlers in Russia, to the person who won Best breeder and Handler-owner because her dogs gained high scores at international exhibitions during the last year, and, of course, the winner of Best in Show with a double-digit lead in this nomination. All the winners of the ranking received personal figurines made by the famous Russian sculptor-animalist Marina Ostrovskaya.

Wellness CORE, the manufacturer of natural grain-free pet food, as the general sponsor of the Gala dinner presented gifts to all the dogs participating in the award ceremony - baskets with Wellness CORE products matched to the breed and age of each dog.

The sponsor of the event Mishiko also presented smart collars with GPS and fitness tracker to the dogs marked in the nomination "With all my heart", and to the volunteer-cynologist. The main organizer of the Gala dinner "Best Russian Dog 2017" Nicolas Pineiro, Jose Luis Ibanez, representative of the European branch Wellness CORE, as well as Ekaterina Leonova, representative of the company "Pet-Continent", the official distributor of Wellness CORE in Russia, handed the main prize to the winner Best in Show - a trip to Fortaleza, Brazil, to represent Russia in The Americas and the Caribbean Section Show in 2018.

Special thanks to the Resource Center "Mosvolonter" for support of the event and excellent work of volunteers throughout the evening. We cordially congratulate all participants of the Gala dinner and wish them new victories and new achievements!
