Visitor information

The choice is huge: there are more than 240 breeds of dogs, some with very different characteristics. They differ in size, appearance and especially by their special character and temperament.

Visitor information

From October 14-16, 2022, the gates of Messe Dortmund will open to offer horse and dog lovers a diverse program.

Hund & Pferd brings together the most popular leisure partners at one trade fair. The largest dog show in Germany combined with a horse show that will delight horse lovers. Around 370 horses and 10,000 dogs keep the public in suspense with a non-stop supporting program.

Breed presentations, a large show program, training demos and numerous hands-on activities promise at least as much fun as the numerous sales booths, where there is everything that dog and horse owners need for their loved ones. At reasonable fair prices, of course.

The fair is open daily from 10.00-18.00. Tickets will be available in our ticket store from August.

The Hund & Pferd

Visitors to Hund & Katz can look forward to a spectacular program: The focus will be on the exciting pedigree dog competitions, where dogs from over 240 different breeds will vie for places on the winners' podium.

Variety is also offered by the supporting and show program: In addition to the fast-paced Frisbee show, there are, among other things, the qualifying runs for the Deutsche Meisterschaft Para-Agility, four-legged TV stars or the helpers on four paws. Another sporting highlight is the German Dog Dancing Championship.
