We are looking forward to your participation in the German Winner & International Show and wish to provide you with some important information in advance. On https://www.messe-hund-und-katz.de/en/leipzig/exhibitor/ you will find the hall and ring plan with the schedule for the judging.

It is sufficient to be at the ring 15 minutes before the judging starts. Entry of the dogs: from 8.30 a.m. The dog entrances are at carpark P2. https://www.messe-hund-und-katz.de/en/leipzig/how-to-find-us/




Start number and tickets

Please remember to print the already sent pdf and to bring it to the show as you do not receive a start number on site and in order to use the vouchers for admission.

Online catalogue

According to the FCI show rules the free online catalogue will be available from August 24, 2019 at 5.00 am for the International Show and from August 25, 2019 at 5.00 am for the German Winner Show on https://www.messe-hund-und-katz.de/catalogue. You can use the free WLAN net in the hall for the download or the view or to print the needed pages at home. There will be no printed catalogues available at the show.

Vaccination Document/Pet Pass

The dogs being brought to an event (show) must have a proof that they have been vaccinated against rabies at least three weeks before the start of the show (bring vaccination documents/EU pet pass). The rabies vaccination is valid for 12 months from the day of the vaccination. If a longer period is to be made valid, then this extended period must be noted officially in the vaccination documents or in the pet pass in the field marked „valid until“. If a dog receives a re-vaccination against rabies within the validity period, then the so-called 3 week deadline no longer applies. For primary vaccinations, the dog must have been at least three months old at the time of the vaccination and the vaccination must have taken place at least 21 days before the event.

Areas for the exhibitors beside the rings

Specific areas solely designated for exhibitors can be found in each hall close to the ring. In this way we ensure that the evacuation routes in the halls remain clear and unobstructed by equipment (pet carriers, grooming tables, chairs, etc.). In these areas the exhibitors have the opportunity to prepare their dogs in peace and wait for the competitions. We request that you make use of these designated areas near your ring. Our staff is available to answer any questions and will show you your respective spaces. Because of security reasons it is forbidden to use crate fences. No dog boxes are provided.

You will find the ring plans and more information on https://www.messe-hund-und-katz.de/en/leipzig/exhibitor/ring-plans/
