The exhibition was held on the grounds of the racecourse in Sopot. Due to the massive area of the venue, the exhibition rings were pretty big. Even the ground was nice and firm, so the dogs accounts quite well run on it. After the intense rains of the days before, Bon Triumph

At this event our dogs had been judged by Zlatko Kraljic / CRO. Zara (Zara Bon Triumph) was rated with very promising 1 and a number of compliments and  was got BEST PUPPY . So she got her invitation to the main ring for the afternoon show.Bon Triumph Zara / Chow Chow

It was still quite early in the day and the time was up to the start of the competitions in the main ring still long.

Shortly after 3 pm the BIS competions started and Zara (Zara Bon Triumph) was the first of our dogs in the main ring. She made a really good show and Bon Triumph Virginia / Chow Chowshowed that she can compete with the fast dogs of other breeds in terms of gait. Unfortunately, She doesn't  got to the podium this time, but participation alone and her appearance were worth it.Bon Triumph Virginia / Chow Chow
