Welcome to the 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 2017 and be the seventh World Dog show held in Germany (1935, 1956, 1973, 1981, 1991, 2003 and 2017). 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.
The VDH is happy to stage the World Dog Show at one of the largest and most modern exhibition sites in Europe - the Leipzig Trade Fair.
Leipzig lies in the heart of Europe and offers outstanding transport services with an excellent motorway network. Leipzig-Halle airport is just a few kilometres from the exhibition grounds and its own local railway station provides a direct connection to the Leipzig main railway station.
As a city of culture, Leipzig is itself also a touristic highlight. Barely any other city boasts such a great tradition of music as Leipzig. Names such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy or Richard Wagner are inextricably associated with Leipzig. In the historical city centre the unique arcades and trading courts, the modern shops and the railway station mall are a real treat for those wanting to shop or those who enjoy a wander around.
Leipzig has become well established as a host venue for dog shows over the decades and enjoys an excellent reputation among exhibitors. The well experienced VDH organization-team will ensure the staging of an event worthy of the World Dog Show.
Leipzig will be a festival for the dogs and we warmly invite you to join in the celebrations!
