Vaccination Document/Pet Pass

The dogs being brought to an event (show) must have a proof that they have been vaccinated against rabies at least three weeks before the start of the show (bring vaccination documents/EU pet pass). The rabies vaccination is valid for 12 months from the day of the vaccination. If a longer period is to be made valid, then this extended period must be noted officially in the vaccination documents or in the pet pass in the field marked „valid until“. If a dog receives a re-vaccination against rabies within the validity period, then the so-called 3 week deadline no longer applies. For primary vaccinations, the dog must have been at least three months old at the time of the vaccination and the vaccination must have taken place at least 21 days before the event.

Areas for the exhibitors beside the rings

Specific areas (green marked in the hall plan) solely designated for exhibitors can be found in each hall. In this way we ensure that the evacuation routes in the halls remain clear and unobstructed by equipment (pet carriers, grooming tables, chairs, etc.). In these areas the exhibitors have the opportunity to prepare their dogs and wait for the competitions. In the show area, dogs may only be prepared for showing by combing and brushing without the use of any substances or grooming aids. Hairdryers and tying dogs to so-called “gallows” is not allowed.

We request that you make use of these designated areas near your ring. Because of security reasons it is forbidden to use crate fences.

You will find the ring plans on our website: http://www.wds2017.de/en/exhibitors/ring-plans/

Online-Tickets

You can order online-tickets for your companions. Please order the appropriate tickets in advance, otherwise you will have to expect waiting times at the dog admission.
