Nationals Week in Mexico

Featured Written by Vince Hogan
Nationals Week in Mexico J.Ortega

Another successful FCM National Week and Tournament of Champions has just taken place in Mexico City writes Vince Hogan...

OUR DOGS are delighted to be the International Media Partners for this progressive kennel club which staged the week long shows on its own meticulous showground in the heart of Mexico City in early April.

Judges from the UK, Germany and of course the USA officiated and to a man were hugely impressed by the superb set up recently enhanced with a fully equipped on site veterinary hospital.

Kevin Davis flew the flag for the UK judging a large entry of Bulldogs.

The Federacion Canofila Mexicana (FCM for short) not only has a huge flat, grassed show arena, but on site a training school, Vet practice, Semen Bank, 200 seat full fitted auditorium, admin offices, extensive library and art collection plus catering and entertainment facilities.

Any Kennel Club in the world would be jealous of such a set up.

National Week features a number of speciality shows, an all breed show on one day and a Tournament of Champions on Saturday night, this year won by an Airedale Terrier. The shows take place over a week long period which is one of the highlights of the show calendar of the FCM. 

A spectacular tent is erected on the FCM show ground and this is used for breed judging, groups and then converted on Saturday evening for the spectacular Tournament of Champions.

The panel of judges all have a chance to be involved at various stages of the rounds and some of  Mexico’s finest dogs are on parade each year. OUR DOGS congratulates the FCM on another successful, well organised, and spectacular Nationals Week once more.
