European Winner Show 2006

The European Winner 2006 show was held in Helsinki, Finland from the 8th to the 11th of June. Every dog that goes BOB at this show will get the title "EW-06", ant the winners of the Junior class gets the title "EJW-06".

Since this is an International show, the best dog and the best bitch can also get an international certificate (CACIB) at this show, to eventually become an international champion. Four CACIBs are needed for the title, and they need to be won under minimum 3 different judges, in 3 different countries, and there needs to be a minimum time span between the first and the last CACIB of 1 year and 1 day.

The entry:
Salt and pepper: dogs (44), bitches (45)
Black and silver: dogs (37), bitches (45)
Black: dogs (30), bitches (31)
White: dogs (15), bitches (17)

The judging was spread out in different rings in different halls, so I did unfortunately only get pictures from the salt and pepper judging

Group Finals

In most of the European countries the schnauzers and pinschers are all gathered in the same club: affen- miniature- and standard pincher, miniature- standard- and giant schnauzer. All the breeds are also shown in the same group (including the Doberman): The Schnauzer Pinschers, Molosses and Sennen dogs. Quite a large and non-uniform group that contains over 50 breeds all together (St. Bernard, Bernese Mountain Dog, all the Mastiffs, Black Russian Terrier, English Bulldog, Great Dane, Newfoundland, Boxer, Rottweiler, just to mention a few).
