Show number and tickets

Please remember to print the already sent start number (pdf) and bring it to the show as you do not receive a start number on site and in order to use the vouchers for admission respectively for the printed catalogue (if bought in advance).

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.

The vet will control the documents at the rings (random).

Online catalogue for free

According to the FCI exhibition rules the free online catalogue for both shows will be available from November 16, 2018 at 5.00 am on http://www.hund-und-pferd.de/catalogue. You can use the free WLAN net in the hall.

Areas for the exhibitors beside the rings

Specific areas (shaded 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 in peace and wait for the competitions. We request that you make use of these designated areas near your ring. Our staff is available to answer any questions and will show you your respective spaces. Because of security reasons it is forbidden to use crate fences. No dog boxes are provided.
