Joint Dog exhibition in June 24 in Helmstedt is canceled

Dear ladies and gentlemen

Dear friends, fellow campaigners and supporters,

We had planned to organize and hold a joint exhibition in Helmstedt this year in a serious setting. The event was duly registered by us. Everything had been agreed with the veterinary office and the conditions set during 2023 were complied with.

However, we unexpectedly received a completely disproportionate list of new requirements from a newly appointed veterinarian just a few weeks before the event. This forced us to cancel the event with immediate effect. The extensive, yet not very specific and in some cases arbitrarily chosen requirements now imposed lead to incalculable costs and risks for exhibitors and organizers. Even entire breeds are being arbitrarily banned from the outset.

The force of such demonstrations of power is absolutely disproportionate. It also raises the question of how it can be that prejudices are made on the basis of interpretations. The number of dogs entered shows how great the desire is for such an exhibition at the Helmstedt location. We hope that common sense will return at some point.

We would like to expressly thank the clubs that wanted to take part and all the exhibitors who agreed to come to Helmstedt!



L'exposition canine collective de juin 24 à Helmstedt est annulée


Chère Madame, cher Monsieur,

Chers amis, compagnons de route et soutiens,

Nous avions prévu d'organiser et de réaliser cette année à Helmstedt une exposition collective dans un cadre sérieux. Nous avions annoncé l'événement en bonne et due forme. Tout avait été convenu avec les services vétérinaires et les conditions fixées au cours de l'année 2023 ont été respectées.

Cependant, nous avons reçu de manière inattendue, de la part d'une vétérinaire nouvellement arrivée, une liste totalement disproportionnée de nouvelles obligations, et ce quelques semaines avant la manifestation. Cela nous a contraints à annuler l'événement avec effet immédiat. Les exigences, nombreuses mais peu concrètes et en partie arbitraires, entraînent des coûts et des risques incalculables pour les exposants et les organisateurs. Des races entières sont même arbitrairement interdites dès le départ.

La force de telles démonstrations de force est absolument disproportionnée. Elle soulève également la question de savoir comment il est possible de préjuger sur la base d'interprétations. Le nombre de chiens inscrits montre à quel point le désir d'organiser une telle exposition sur le site de Helmstedt est grand. Nous espérons que le bon sens reviendra un jour.

Nous remercions expressément les clubs qui ont souhaité participer et tous les exposants qui ont accepté de venir à Helmstedt !
