A mass invasion of canines at the Football Grounds, behind Dairy Science College in Hebbal, as part of the All India Championship dog show on Sunday, left spectators and dog owners bristling with pride and enthusiasm.

Some 460 dogs of breeds from all over the country and the world were present, leaving Police Commissioner B G Jyothi Prakash Mirji, who flagged off the event, showering praise on the Mysore Kennel Club for organising the event.

Rare dogs such as the African Boer Boal, the Miniature Schnauzer, the Neapolitan Mastiff, the Weimaraner, the Fox Terrier, and the Saluki Tzu were present.


Many dog enthusiasts brimmed with excitement as the dogs showed off their skills and agility as a part of the Obedience Trials programme. Most canines competed for wins in categories such as Best of Breed, Best in Puppy and Best in Show.

“It’s a delight to watch dogs of different breeds all under one roof,” Mirji said, obviously enjoying the show. “These types of events should happen more as it brings the human beings closer to the dog community.”

The show was adjudicated by Dr Agus Wardhana from Indonesia, C V Sudarsan of Chennai and Yashodhara Hemchandra. Rajendra Salvi judged the Obedience Trials. Dr C Renuka Prasad, Director of the Institute of Animal Health and Veterinary Biologicals was the chief guest.

One of those who had their dogs in the show was Malini, an IT staffer. “I’ve had a whale of time coming here and having my pet dog, ‘Rani,’ in the show,” she said.

“Although its bit difficult to look after pet dogs because of family and work, it’s been really great to own them because they are so loyal. Today, Rani is just like any other family member and very dear to me.”

P V Yathinder, the President of the Mysore Kennel Club explained that this is the 100th year of the show being held in the City.

“Earlier we used to give away prizes in the form of trophies but in the last few years, we are giving away statues that reflect historical places of our State such as Hampi, Mysore Palace., etc,” he said.

Winners

A doberman from Bangalore was declared the best dog, and a beagle pup was declared as best puppy. A Mudhol owned by Venkappa Dundappa Navalgi was declared best indigenous dog.
