The Lithuanian Kennel Club apologises all dog show participants that in relation to the pandemic situation international dog shows had to be cancelled during the year 2020 and 2021.
All dogs registered for International dog shows in 18-20 December 2020 can be transferred to any International dog show held by the Lithuanian Kennel Club in 2021.
The dogs entered to one show will be re-entered to one show (for entering to two or three shows extra fees apply).
A new book entitled „The Lithuanian Hound“ was published in 2021 by Vilnius University Press.
The authors of the publication are Mantas Milinavičius, Marius Smetona and Anželika Smetonienė – Lithuanian Hounds breeders and lovers.
The Lithuanian Hound is not yet recognised by the FCI but breed lovers and breeders make a huge effort for this to happen.
„It is one more step forward towards recognision, which is extremely important for preserving and promoting our national dog breed, – says Ramune Kazlauskaite, the President of the Lithuanian Kennel Club.
Some extracts from the book:
A preliminary dog show schedule for 2021 has been arranged.
The Lithuanian Kennel Club is planning to have international dog shows in Moletai on 28-30 May and 2-4 July, in Druskininkai on 6-8 August, in Palanga on 24-26 September and in Vilnius on 17-19 December.
National and speciality shows will mainly be held outside during the warm season.
We hope the quarantine will end soon and restrictions on big events will be relaxed.
We sincerely apologized all dog lovers for cancelled dog shows in 2020 – 2021.
We hope for your understanding and wish you the most important – stay safe and healthy!
Show judges and all relevant information about the shows will be announced in the nearest future.
Show Schedule is subject to changes with reference to the pandemic situation in our country.
The dogs that were entered for International dog shows in December 2020 can transfer their entries to the International dog shows to be held in 2021. Dogs and classes can be changed.
