On Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 July we’ll be at the 86th Turin International Dog Show, a beauty contest in which the judges will assess how closely dogs comply with the standards of their breed, and ultimately choose the “Best in Show”.

As well as watching the competition, visitors will have the opportunity for a close-up look at more than 2000 dogs representing 200 different breeds: from Great Danes up to a metre tall to the tiniest Chihuahuas, from common breeds like German Shepherd to less-known ones such as Cirneco dell’Etna, Chinese Crested Dog and Rhodesian Ridgeback.

Once again this year, the event will have an important charity angle: all proceeds will be donated to the construction of a children’s hospital in Somalia and to the Doctor Magic project by Marco Berry onlus www.dogsforchildren.org.
