We are so glad 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 DogDancing European Open Championship is part of Germany’s largest pet fair, the “Animal”.
