With dog lovers turning up with their pets from Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Pakistan, Russia, USA, Mexico, New Zealand besides India, the event that ended on Sunday, was biggest of its kind in north India, claimed the organisers.
"It was an exhilarating experience for dog lovers of the city. The football stadium was totally jampacked with over 15,000 people thronging the show,'' said Sanjay Kapoor, GKS secretary.
On show were breeds such as the pug, Labrador, boxer, dachshund smooth hair, Afghan hound, caravan hound, chippiparai, combai, Irish wolfhound, rajapalayam, saluki, whippet, German shepherd, Welsh corgi, basset hound, beagle and Dalmatian among others.
"They were judged by seven international judges on factors like coat size, temperament, agility and the looks as per standard set by FCI,'' said Vikram Singh, GKC member. He added that although many of the owners were professional groomers and dog handlers, the rest were simply dog lovers.
