International Show, Reykjavik

DOG judges are eager travellers, and Iceland is considered one of the most desirable European destinations for judging appointments. Thanks to the young age of the Icelandic KC and a small population, there are only four dog shows a year organised in this mystic and distant country. So to get a judging appointment there is quite an honour for a judge.

This show was  an International Show which took place in Reykjavik on 22nd and 23rd of February, 2014, and there were just six judges on duty: Kenneth Edh, Kurt Nielsen and Benny from Sweden, Arne Foss from Norway, Francesco Cochetti from Italy and myself from Slovenia.

Icelandic KC International Show

The dog culture in Iceland is fairly new. The Icelandic Kennel Club (HRFI) was founded in 1969 and got a full membership to the FCI just last year. HRFI hosts three international shows each year, one national and occasional club shows. 

At the all breed shows there are around 700 to 800 dogs entered of over, or around, 80 different breeds. That might not seem so much but the country is very closed off. No dogs from abroad are entered for shows because all dogs coming to Iceland must go through a four week expensive quarantine.
