We are very happy to finally host dog dancers from all over the world again! The FCI European Open Championship is one of the largest and most important championships in the world. In the last 2 years we have all been slowed down by the Covid 19 virus, the first EOC in Russia was first postponed and then unfortunately cancelled. We've all managed to make the most of it and not lose focus on what we like to do: work with our dogs.We are happy to be able to share our passion in a friendly sports competition with teams from many nations.
The Dog Dancing European Open Championship is an international dog dancing competition officially recognized by the FCI. The championship is always hosted by a European country, but participants from outside Europe are welcome. It is organized using the current regulations for international FCI-DogDancing competitions and the related regulations and guidelines, except that the competition is OPEN to all dogs with or without pedigree. All national member organisations of the FCI or national organisations with close links to the FCI are invited to participate in this event. If a national kennel club does not send a team, it is possible for an independent national team or individual participants to register and participate in the event with the consent of their kennel club.
All participants must be citizens of the country they represent or have their main residence there. For all participating dogs, a workbook or license issued by the sending national member organization of the FCI or a national organization closely associated with the FCI must be presented.
The individual EO winners of the previous championship are automatically qualified without affecting the number assignment of their country. If their Kennel Club accepts them as an additional participant outside the assigned 4+1 places in their national team, their result will not be counted towards the team result in the competition.
