World Dog Show 2022 - Locations & News

Author WDF Staff


The COVID-19 pandemic caused all sorts of commotion in the dog show world. While that is slightly frustrating to some of us, we must remember the countless lives this terrible disease has taken. Since the COVID-19 vaccines were developed, the world started to open up a bit, and it looks like there might be an end to this terrible period of our lives.

As the world opens up, dog shows and events are picking back up, and the FCI agreed with the Spanish kennel club and the Brazilian kennel club regarding the 2020 and 2022 world dog shows. If you’re planning on attending the 2022 World Dog Show, here are a few things you should know.

Where is the 2022 World Dog Show held?

The 2022 World Dog Show will be held in Sao Paolo, Brazil. It is one of the best locations in the world. Sao Paolo is known for warm but unreliable weather, so make sure you bring plenty of rain covers for yourself and your dog. One of the things you should know about the city is that it has unbelievable traffic jams. You have to carefully plan your routes and possibly get accommodation as close to the venue as possible.

The venue

The chosen venue for the biggest and most important dog show exhibition in the world is São Paulo Expo Events Center. It is located in the center of the city, which means you are close to all the main gastronomy spots, city center, subway stations, and hotels. The São Paulo Expo Events Center is the largest in Brazil, and all important expo events, like car shows, are held in it.

On their official site, they have mentioned they built new roads, so coming to the Expo shouldn’t be a problem. There are more than 7.500 rooms available in the area, so finding one shouldn’t be an issue. However, make sure you check in early and make sure the accommodation is dog-friendly.

Brazil World Dog Show 2022 date

The World Dog Show 2022 in Brazil will be held on 10-11 December 2022. This is not the usual time previous world dog shows were held. Still, due to the unprecedented situation, the Brazilian kennel club decided to postpone it.

World Dog Show Madrid

The Brazil World Dog Show 2022 will be held so late in the year because of the World Dog Show 2020. The 2020 WDS should have been held in June 2020 in Madrid, but due to COVID restrictions, the organizer, alongside the FCI, decided to postpone it several times. In February 2021, Spanish Kennel Club and FCI finally decided that the belated World Dog Show Madrid would be held 24 - 26 June 2022.

The new date would clash with the 2022 World Dog Show, so the two kennel clubs decided to compromise and organize their events on different dates.

In conclusion

We are all eager to see our beloved dog shows back. Still, we need to ensure the exhibitor’s safety is a priority. We certainly hope that 2022 will be the last for this disease, and life will return to normal. If you’re planning to visit the 2020 World Dog Show or the 2022 World Dog Show in Brazil, we wish you all the luck, and we hope you will enjoy the most important dog events of the year.
