HAPPY DOG will be the new partner of the Dogshow Maastricht from 2019

The foundation Hondententoonstelling Maastricht and HAPPY DOG Nederland have decided to work together in the coming years with the dog shows in Maastricht. Happy Dog will be the official and exclusive partner of the shows at the MECC from the shows in September 2019. The board of the show organization is very pleased that in Happy Dog they have found an enthusiastic and energetic partner who can continue to build an even better dog weekend with her.

Happy Dog is now included in all communications and they will also be very present at our shows that will take place on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 September 2019.

In recent years Eukanuba Nederland was the main partner of the shows in Maastricht. We thank them for the way in which they have worked with the organization for years and helped to make the shows one of the largest exhibition organizations in the Netherlands.

With HAPPY DOG we hope to give a new interpretation to the appearance of our shows.

Lately, we (the organisation and the exhibitors) have been approached regularly about the way we treat our dogs at the dog shows. As passionate dog lovers, we will all go to great lengths to make sure that our dogs feel as comfortable as possible during a dog show. However, not everyone agrees with us that a dog show is an atmospheric and responsible event for both humans and dogs. Together, we can do something about that. TOGETHER, we can ensure that our dogs are well cared for, that they are sufficiently walked and that they are correctly prepared for the show and guided into the ring. Do not give people an opportunity to question your and our hobby - cooperate with the following code of conduct:

  • Do not let your dog stand or lie down on the grooming table for too long.
    Tying dogs to so-called 'gallows' is strictly prohibited.
  • Do not leave your dog(s) in the car.
  • Do not put more than two small dogs or one (medium) large dog in one cage.
  • All dogs must be able to sit, lie down and stand inside their cage.
  • Usage of cages with grid floors is strictly prohibited.
  • Dogs in cages should have access to sufficient fresh drinking water throughout the entire day.
  • Guide the dog with a loose leash or lift it in an animal-friendly manner. Do not lift the dog by the leash (collar) and do not grab and lift the dog by the skin and/or tail.
  • Dogs lifted with a tight leash will be disqualified from participation.
  • Walk your dog multiple times a day. At our show, you can freely walk your dog outside the hall. However, please make sure that you immediately pick up after your dog.
  • You must also immediately follow any instructions given by the Dog Welfare Team.
  • Our judges, ring assistants and other staff members will also ensure that everyone follows the house rules.
  • After consulting with the town council, it has been decided that prior to the judging, the BOB dogs from breeds listed on the BSI (Breed Specific Instructions) will be examined for extreme behavioural and/or health issues. The veterinarian has the right to bar any dogs showing extreme characteristics that result in health or behavioural problems from further participation.

We are all keen to maintain our common hobby and passion. Your conduct can make the difference for us!

We therefore count on your cooperation.

Dogs coming from and living in Norway are banned from Maastricht Dog shows

Unfortunately the organization of the Maastricht Dog shows had to decide to ban all dogs coming from and living in Norway. This because of an advice from the Norsk Kennel Club regarding a still unknown disease in Norway that can kill dogs!

We are very sad for our Norwegian dog lovers not only the cannot visit our shows now, but most of all we are with our friends and their dogs in Norway. We wish you all the strength you need to overcome this disease as soon as possible.

The Norwegian exhibitors have already been contacted.

Dear exhibitors, dog lovers and visitor(s),

On Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 September 2019, the HTM Foundation once again organized a successful 42th and 43st International Dog Show at the MECC in Maastricht. 
We thank all exhibitors for their participation in our international dogshow and we were also pleasantly surprised with the number of visitors who have found their way to our top location (MECC). Also a word of thanks to them.

Of course our thanks to our fantastic volunteers, without them such an event can not be organized.
The results wil been published as soon as possible on this website.
We would like to see our international exhibitors back in Maastricht in 2020.
