If you were in Paris, France, from July 7th to July 10th, you would have found CANIDAE mingling with the “elite”. These blue bloods were the 38,000 pedigreed dogs from 69 countries that came to strut their stuff and compete in the French and the World Championships at the centenary World Dog Show during four days. Hosting 25,000 visitors and 22,000 dog exhibitors was the Parc des Expositions of Paris Nord Villepinte, a venue with 100,000 square meters of exhibition area and 100 show rings.
Kennel clubs, regional dog societies, breed clubs and 240 stand exhibitors filled the areas around the rings. Manny Rosillo, CANIDAE International Sales Manager and Barbara Rosillo, International Sales Assistant, greeted visitors to the CANIDAE booth and promoted the benefits of all our natural, super-premium pet foods. Yes, a good number of dog owners at the show also have cats in their families. Many visitors brought along their non-competing dogs for an outing, although, prudently, cats stayed home, and the possibility of havoc was averted!
The French public were very eager to have CANIDAE available in stores in their country. In addition to dog lovers and CANIDAE customers from all over Western Europe to Russia and Ukraine, visitors from Turkey, Australia, Japan, and Taiwan and even from “back home”, the USA and Canada, stopped by our booth. Their comments confirm that CANIDAE is a globally recognized brand.
The next World Dog Show, which is an annual event, will take place May 18th to 20th, 2012, in Salzburg, Austria.
