Exhibition achievements 2023


It went by quickly and we have another exhibition year behind us, this time with the full line-up of Stellinka, Lexinka and Docík. We have already gone to some exhibitions only with Stellinka, because Lexinka and Docík have already won many awards and are Champions and Grand Champions in many European countries. Together, we will look at the biggest achievements of this year, which began with our first ever participation in the Champion of Champions.

  • Champion of Champions 14 January 2023, Prague. "I would like to try the Champion of Champions with Lexinka", came Julinka one day. So why not? It was a big challenge. The exhibition is very specific. Whether it's the place - everything takes place in the hotel hall, or the course. It starts with a quick assessment within the FCI groups where there is only one judge to select the best. Subsequently, it goes to the elimination phase. There are always two individuals against each other and a total of five judges judge, who pull out a green or red "slapstick". The dogs stand on either a green or red mat and when the light turns on the dog and the mat, it means it is progressing. The exhibition was preceded by several trainings, where Julinka and Lexinka learned specific exhibiting techniques. And how did it turn out? They performed amazingly! The "basic" round was chosen by referee Zdenka Jílková, who selected Lexinka for the next round. And it was possible to eliminate. First round vs. Podhalany shepherd - win! Second round vs. chipper - win! Third round vs. belgian shepherd - win! Fourth round vs. Australian Shepherd - semi-final - loss. Fifth round vs. border collie - for third place - win! Lexinka won an amazing third place. This is a huge success!

  • International show, Lubin, Poland, 22/01/2023, judge Piotr Król. The next weekend we went to Poland. The romantic journey in the fog, snow and cruel winter was worth it. Lexinka performed beautifully in the crowded hall. EX1, CWC, CACIB, BOB, BIG3.

On the first day, Julinka competed with Prime (Stellinka's brother) and on the second day with Stellinka.
  • International show Prague, 8 December 2023, judge Mark Wibier (NL). In autumn, we slowed down a bit in exhibitions and devoted ourselves to dog sports.
