Top Show of Italy - ENCI Winner

The greatest show event of Italy 2019 was the 3 days long ENCI WINNER show, now held in Verona, on 13-15 of Dec. The ECNI winner is a „Very Important Show”, started 2 years ago, in the first 2 years hold in Milan, in June, now in Verona in December. The Italian Kennel Club wants to develop  this show for the most important show of Italy, first I were in Milan, but later, the show will walk around Italy, held every year in another city, now in Verona. The show area were in 3 halls of the Verona Intl Fiera, 2 halls were for the breed judging rings, one hall for the trade stands and main ring. After the successful 2015 WDS, starting is officially a candidate for the organization of the World Dog Show 2025.

Friday was Verona Intl.  Show, there were 2300 entries, Saturday on the first day of the ENCI WINNER were the 3,6,7,8,10 Groups, Sunday the 1 2  4 5 9 Groups, on the 2 days with 3010 entries. Saturday and Sunday for the dogs, who were not on the ENCI WINNER were held specialities, so the all dogs were judged 3 times on the weekend. All 3 days was Crufts qualification show, too.

This show was and extraordinary opportunity to get the Italian Champion title. Usual for this need 6 CAC winning title (what is only one each breed each sexes per show), and minimum 2 out of them need to collect on International show, min 2 on speciality organised by the breed club (yearly club show or speciality), and min 1 from any National show. Now, on this weekend only, if a dog won 3 CAC (Friday on the Intl show Sat-Sun 1 Intl’s 1 Special’s) got the Italian Champion title. Also, were able to got Italian Veteran or Junior Champion too. This possibility makes this show very unique and hard to make its, because not only one foreign dog arrived for this opportunity. 

The main ring was very showing, as usual in Italy, same size as in the previous year, was oval, over the podium a great of LCD panels, all time used, the podium vas only 2 steps high, there were a lot of different lights in the main ring;  lights, spotlights, colours, combined played, with the lights and music. There was a live streaming of the cameras, what was able on the big screens in the main ring. And was a big screen for the results, just 1 second after the placing of the judge was show the result on the screen already.

The Italian Kennel Club prepared this show a lot, not just with a good place and good judge list, but with more media publishing, more dog sports presentation or competition, and the Farmina’s Top Dog competition ( I do not know the reason why the main sponsor Royal Canin allowed an another company’s event to this show).  The catalogue (since 2018) was online only, not printed, a good idea, 99% of the catalogues will be thrown away the next day.

The  5000 dogs did not fulfilled the halls, there were enough spaces for the rings, for the exhibitors, trade stands, presentation ring, means everybody. The show halls were big enough, but did not let the exhibitors take down their crates everywhere, between the rings were signed the walking and packaging places by the colour tapes on the ground, and the exhibitors mostly kept it.

The best showing part was the decoration of the main ring and ENCI stands, the installation was built from old dog show photos, with a huge and colour ENCI letters, make such a fancy background for selfies or normal photos.

Beside the show, were the presentation of dog dancing, search and rescue dogs, dog frisbee, and the Italian Championship of agility, too.

But the main sponsor was the Royal Canin, the other dog food manufacturer, the Farmina sponsored the Top Dog competition, Saturday with selection and pre-judging (in a separated ring) , and Sunday with the final in the main ring, in 2 categories, juniors and adults. The adult winner was Anna Albrigo’s (her own bred too) Sheltie, Ch. BLUE JEANS BOY DI SELVASPINA.

There was a big international judge and handler parade, the all professionals Italian handlers were here, and a lot of the other Middle Eastern European Countries, too. The speakers of the show were Laura Corradini, Sonia Merati and Stefano Marelli. The foreign judges of the show were: ARMSTRONG MORAY (GB), BIONDI DE CIABATTI ILARIA (PE), COODE CAROL (GB), DELERUE PEDRO SANCHES (PT), GRILLO LONGONO JUAN ALBERTO (CO), HOLLINGS PATSY (GB), KOZLAREK LUKASZ (PL) MARPE MARION (D) OSORIO DE CASTRO CATARINA (PT) OZKANAL UMIT (TU) SORUM METTE (DK) TROMP-PRUIJN REGINA (NL) VAN RUITEN-HAJNOVÁ GABRIELA (CZ), VELEZ-PICO ROBERTO (PR), MALO ALCRUDO RAFAEL (ES), KLEIN JEAN CLAUDE (FR), PALOHEIMO ANNUKKA (FI) SCHILL ROBERTO (RO) RIVERA FRANCO AIDA (CO) RAMIREZ MUNOZ MANUEL (ES) PEHAR TINO (HR) PALOHEIMO ANNUKKA(FI), OSORIO DE CASTRO CATARINA (PT) PETER HARSANYI (H), ANDRAS KOROZS (H).
