Dear Webinar Participant,
Due to the resumption of Shows in Gauteng and the Vereeniging & Districts KC Championship Show taking place on Saturday, 31st October, 2020, the Indian Hound Breeds Webinar with Mr. Shharat Sharma has been rescheduled to 16h30 on Saturday afternoon and will not take place at 10h00 as originally advertised.
We apologise for any inconvenience this change in time may cause any participants not resident in Gauteng and/or not exhibiting at the Show.
We look forward to welcoming you to the webinar on Saturday afternoon and to meeting virtually once again!
Earlier this year, KUSA reported on the judgement handed down by the District Court in Dortmund, Germany, which concluded that the Verband für das Deusche Hundewesen (VDH) had violated German and European antitrust laws by seeking to restrain the Verein für Deutsche Schäferhunde (SV) from releasing its German Shepherd Dog Specialist Judges to member organisations of the Weltunion der Vereine für Deutsche Schäferhunde (WUSV) that are not members of the FCI’s National Canine Organisations (NCOs) in various countries of the world. This decision came about as the result of a legal challenge mounted by three WUSV-affiliated Clubs in various countries against an earlier directive issued by the VDH.
The VDH appealed the Dortmund finding to the Higher Regional Court of Düsseldorf and, on 7 September 2020, the Higher Court ruled in favour of the VDH, causing the three claimants to lose their case.
