Author WDF Staff | Last updated: Nov 27 2023


The biggest dog show in the world for 2024 was scheduled to be held in Kyiv – Ukraine. Last week we got the information that because of the war, the scheduled World Dog Show will not be held in Ukraine.

FCI decided that the new host of this prestigious dog event will be held in Zagreb, Croatia. The exact date of the WDS 2024 is April 25 - 28, 2024.

Where will the WDS 2024 be held?

The FCI general assembly and the World Dog Show are scheduled to be held in Zagreb, Croatia.  The Croatian Kennel Club will be the host, and they cannot be more excited to organize what promises to be one of the highlight dog show events in 2024

Where is the venue?

Zagreb and Croatia are annually home to some large expos. Luckily, there are fantastic showrooms where the venue can be held. For the World Dog Show 2024, the venue is the Zagrebački velesajam - Zagreb Fair. Every year there are CACIB dog shows held at this place.

Zagreb has a large selection of hotels and private accommodations, so make sure you reserve yours on time. Most hotels and accommodations are dog-friendly, but it would be wise to check with them beforehand.

World Dog Show 2024 dates

The exact date of the WDS 2024 is 25 - 28 April 2024. After some consideration and meetings with the Croatian Kennel Club, the FCI agreed these would be the best possible dates. 

What’s the weather like?

Getting the exact forecast for the World Dog Show in 2024 is a bit tricky. However, temperatures in Croatia are very mild, and you can be sure your dog will enjoy it. The highest temperature in April was 17°C, and the lowest was 8°C. Those are suitable temperatures for dogs and dog owners. Make sure you bring appropriate clothes.
