Welcome to the World Championship for utility dogs in Malmö!

With regards to the World Championship for utility dogs in Malmö, Sweden, we should pause and think for a few moments about our four legged friends, -helpers and -lifetime companions. Being together with these wonderful animals is a foundation of human survival and a source of respect for nature and all living creatures. Whether it is for competition, companionship, assistance, security or search and rescue; in good and bad times, dogs are a man’s best friend.

To organize a World Championship involves a tremendous amount of preparation, volunteer work and stress. I want to thank our hosts and their team for all the hard work.

For all the participants I wish good luck and great results at this World Championship. For the judges, I trust that their experience and impartiality will fulfil their important task to come to objective and fair judgements.

Finally I hope that all participants, visitors and friends of the utility dog sport, will experience a wonderful Championship and I am sure that they will enjoy the hospitality of Malmö.

On behalf of the FCI Utility Dogs Commission,



Frans Jansen
