The international dog sport finds its yearly high point in the FCI IPO World Championship. The 2017 FCI IPO World Championship will take place, for the second time now, in Rheine, Germany.
World Dog Show 2017
We are pleased that the FCI has given the VDH the honorable and ambitious task of hosting the World Dog Show 2017. The World Dog Show will take place in Leipzig from 9 to 12 November. The day before the World Dog Show, the VDH will hold the German Winner Show on 8 November 2017 in the same location and not in August as originally planned. Leipzig will be a festival for the dogs and we warmly invite you to join in the celebrations!
Puppy mills – no thank you!
VDH and animal welfare organisations warn about buying bargain basement puppies online. In addition to the serious problems that exist in the breeding and the subsequent transport of the young animals, the puppy trade also leads to further dangers that are caused by the imported dogs once they are grown.
Dogs in Motion
This book explores the locomotion of dogs in a highly scientific yet easily accessible manner. An innovative illustrative style brings the dog anatomy to life and makes clear the way in which the skeleton, the muscles and locomotion fit together.
