    The French Championship Show takes place this weekend in Paris.

    Lot of dogs ! (6500 dogs on 2 days)

    Some people of this forum were here... I was there with two of my Hokkaido ken : Niki and Satchan.

    Enjoy some pictures :

    6500 dogs!!! That is an incredibly huge show, I though 1500-2000 was a lot. I like those Hokkaido, are they easy to show?Hokusei Kashinoki Hokkaido and Shiba Inu

    6500 dogs is almost a nightmare in two days, wow!
    We'll have the Lisbon show in a few weeks, and I'm already thinking it will be kind of hard, with probably 1700-2000 dogs.

    How did they do? They seem to be enjoying it.

    Congratulations Emilie! Sensei looks very happy in the ring.

    I see that Kaishi won the CACIB. Kuma is proud of his daddy!

    Lindsay - Kuma is fine with the judges examining him, he sometimes even snicks a quick kiss, if he likes them. It's the standing still he has problems with.

    It's really interesting to see the differences, the leads seem very colorfull and hefty compared to what we use in the states.

    I spy a corded standard poodle in the background of the 4th pic- I don't think I would ever see one at a show here. That's cool!Hokusei Kashinoki Hokkaido and Shiba Inu

    It's really rare !

    Lindsay, Good eye....I have not seen a corded poodle in person. Keeping those dreads must be a task!


    Sophie I like the fact your show is not overly suit and tie oriented. It looks like a nice venue where everyone is comfortable.

    Sushi, does the show provide vendors who sell sushi?? Wow! How I would love to see that here.
    The closest we have come on a good vendor station was Greek food and in one case Thai noodles.

    In many cases exhibitors are highly discouraged from bringing in food and laying out a spread to share with fellow exhibitors.
    The show grounds likes to have the vendor rights for food and most of he consumables are just plain cruddy and unhealthy.

    Why such tight leads on show dogs? The handlers all pull up on the leads and make them very short...can they not stand nicely on a loose lead? Is the enviroment just too overwhelming with all the stuff going on at a show? Is it to make the akitas' ruffs stand out for the judge?

    It's the japanese way to handle a show dog.
    the lead srait over the head. We have special leads and leader collars. Japanese collars make the head be well "round".
    Here, everybody present japanese dog in japanese way...

    Nice collars! I think in the US the leads are all slip leads- but your collars look flat on the inside - not chokers. The leads are really pretty and thick! Thanks for teaching me! :) I always wondered why their heads looked so round- spherical.
