Almuñécar Dog Day

No, we don’t mean that the town is going to the dogs, but that the dogs are coming to town for the II Concurso Nacional Canino (dog show).

Around 200 breeders and dog owners are expected to take part in the competition, which includes the II Trofeo “Ciudad de Almuñécar.”

The competition will be held where the Friday market is normally held (Plaza Blas Infante) tomorrow, Sunday the 12th starting at 10.00h with the registering of those who wish to compete. There will be eight categories: Veteran, Open, Intermediate, Young, Pups, Baby, Pairs and Breeding Group.

Three panel judges will preside over the finals, expected to be around 13.00h. Winning dogs from each category will receive a trophy, with the winners being able to go forward to the Andalusia and national competition.

The event is organized by the Sociedad  Canina de Andalucía Oriental, (Eastern Andalusia Canine Association) and is sponsored by the Town Hall and the Asociación Sexitanos Afghans.
