A special show for Indian dogs

Bangalore, Jan 16, 2013, DHNS:

The Mysore Kennel Club, which has entered its 82nd year, will host its 100th dog show at Karnataka Veterinary, Animal & Fisheries Sciences campus, on Saturday.

Briefing reporters, Club President P V Yathinder said: “for the first time, Indian dog speciality show scheduled for Saturday will showcase the canine pride of Karnataka — ‘Mudhol Hound’ along with ‘Pashmi’, both native to the State.” ‘Rajapalayam’ and ‘Chippiparai’, native Tamil Nadu dogs and ‘Caravan’, native to Maharashtra will also be vying for pet lovers’ attention.

“There were about 27 native Indian dogs in the country. But, unfortunately, today we have only about seven of them surviving. The Mudhol Hound, also on its way to extinction, has been saved after great efforts,” Yathinder said.

On Sunday, the club will host the All India Championship Dog Show, along with Obedience Trials of Mysore Kennel Club. There will also be a demonstration of agility and skills by dogs on both days.

Best breed

“A total of 48 different breeds of dogs comprising 460 exhibits from all over the country will compete for Best of Breed, Best in Group and Best in Show categories,” he said.

The show will see some rare breeds like ‘African Boer Boal’, ‘Miniature Schnauzer’, ‘Neapolitan Mastiff’, ‘Weimaraner’, ‘Fox Terrier’, ‘Saluki Tzu’  participating. Agus Wardhana from Indonesia, C V Sudarsan (Chennai) and Yashodhara Hemchandra, will be the judges, while Rajendra and Salvi will adjudicate the Obedience Trials.
