THE INKC TO HOLD 184TH & 185TH TWIN CHAMPIONSHIP DOG SHOWS IN AHMEDABAD
Once every winter, animal lovers in Ahmedabad look forward to the Indian National Kennel Club’s Dog Show. The INKC has been holding dog shows for over 50 years and for more than 24 years now, the INKC has been holding bigger and better dog shows in Ahmedabad. Every year this all-India show attracts more than 150 dogs from all over India and more than 6,000 spectators. This time, the INKC Dog Show will be held on Sunday, January 6, 2013 at Gujarat Law Society, Navranpura.
The dog show in Ahmedabad is one of many dog shows held by INKC all over India. INKC dog shows attract the best and the rarest of dog breeds from around the country and are judged by respected and knowledgeable judges from India and abroad.
The INKC has the distinction of being the first and only kennel club in the world to have recognized and promoted Indian dog breeds i.e. Mudhol Hound, Pashmi and Rajapalayam. The INKC is also well known as the club with the most stringent registration procedure, hence making INKC papers more respected by serious breeders. The INKC was also the first (and for many years the only) kennel club in India to have recognized the German Spitz as a distinct breed, while other clubs were erroneously registering these as Pomeranians.
This year, the Twin Championship Dog Shows will be judged by Mr. Phiroze Javeri, Vice President of INKC, from Mumbai and Mr. Rakesh Dutta from Kolkata. Mr. Phiroze Javeri, an architect by profession, has been breeding and judging dogs for many decades. Mr. Rakesh Dutta has also judged dog shows all over India.
This year’s INKC Dog Show in Ahmedabad will have many breeds, including Shih-Tzu, Neopolitan Mastiif, Yorkshire Terrier, English Mastiff, Pekingese, Fox Terrier, Jack Russell Terrier, Dogue de Bordeaux, Shar Pei, Chihuahua. The Rajapalayam, our native Indian breed will also be represented at the show.
