The Nordic Kennel Union is implementing a new dog show type, the Nordic Dog Show. The first shows will be arranged in 2018.
The new show type is meant to be a complement to the current national and international shows. A show cannot be both international and Nordic, and the introduction of Nordic shows will reduce the number of international shows held in the Nordic countries.
In the Nordic shows, dogs will compete for both national and Nordic Show Certificates. Veteran and Junior dogs are also able to compete for Nordic certificates, something that is currently not possible when competing for CACIB. The current Nordic Champion title is replaced by the new Nordic Show Champion title.
