Vince Hogan, OUR DOGS Managing Director, was delighted to receive a special award at the recent European Dog Show in Budapest.

The presentation of a special certificate and Hungarian crystal was made in recognition of the co-operation, advance work and promotion between the Hungarian Kennel Club and OUR DOGS for the European Show. The presentation took place at the official dinner, held in the spectacular setting of Castle Buda, high above the Danube in the city centre of Budapest.

“OUR DOGS have been established on the British and Irish circuit since 1895, but of course times have changed, people’s attitudes are different, and there are new horizons in the world of dogs”, said Vince. ‘the OUR DOGS team have been working with a number of clubs and organisations in Europe as more and more people now show across the continent, with UK exhibitors very much in the mix. We are all delighted with the award and send thanks and best wishes to all our friends in Hungary”

In fact OUR DOGS are now working with the Irish Kennel Club for the European Show in Dublin 2009 and the World Show in Slovakia in the same year as their official International Media partner; additionally, the City of Birmingham Show and OD have struck up a similar relationship, first launched at Stoneleigh earlier this year, and will be flying the flag for the ‘City’ early in 2009.
Schedules for all these shows can be found on the Our Dogs stands at UK shows and of course there is now interest in Europe to obtain UK schedules as well and in November OUR DOGS will be at the popular Kortrijk show in Belgium with our full range of newspaper, books and show information.

All of these shows can be located under the show calendar section on the OUR DOGS web site www.ourdogs.co.uk
