Dear Readers,

When you read this Editorial, the Société Royale Saint-Hubert will have organised the 2016 FCI European Section Show in Brussels.

More than 12,000 participating dogs have entered this prestigious event !!! Isn’t it amazing? It depends on how you look at those figures! It’s amazing “per se” as such an entry places the 2016 FCI European Section Show among the top 3 of all the FCI Section Shows ever. It’s amazing because the World has been going and turning somewhat wrong lately but still, exhibitors and breeders do want to live their passion for dogs and keep taking part in all kinds of canine events, be it shows or sport competitions. We do thank and congratulate them for that.

Upon invitation of the FCI, Four Paws present their campaign promoting Responsible Ownership at the FCI European Dog Show 2016

August 27th, 2016

Today, after the daily dog show press conference, the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) invited all the stakeholders in the canine world to attend Four Paws’ presentation of their activities in the framework of their campaign promoting Responsible Ownership.

James Pirnay, Companion Animal Policy Coordinator at the European Office of Four Paws, introduced us to the CAROdog project, an EU multi-stakeholder approach to canine population knowledge management leading to responsible ownership. Through the Dogs for People project in Romania, he showed us the crucial role of education in responsible ownership and how it can benefit both stray dogs and people.
