Over the two days of the fair, nearly 4,000 dogs from 16 countries will compete for the title of the best canine. There will be a total of 236 dog breeds represented, including such rare ones as the Komondor, sometimes referred to as a “mop dog”, the Spanish galgo or Spanish greyhound (Galgo Espanol), the Bouvier des Ardennes, a number of such “French aristocrats” as the Ariege Pointer (Braque de l'Ariege) and the Artesian Norman Basset (Basset Artesien Normand) as well as hunting dogs, e.g. the Small Munsterlander Pointer.
The toughest fight for the crown of the best representative of a breed is expected to take place among Miniature Schnauzers, Jack Russell Terriers, Basenjis, Pomeranians, English Cocker Spaniels, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Pugs, Labrador Retrievers and Whippets.
