  • Exactly 25 years after the first congress in Bushey/UK, the NVOW will, on August 7 and 8, 2018, organize the 10th Afghan Hound World Congress in Amsterdam and invites all Afghan Hound fanciers to join this jubilee congress.

    Many congresses disapproved extremes, exaggeration and basic standard discrepancies showing up in the breed and declared that it is time to do something about it. However, on many showgrounds it could be noticed that these good intentions have not been transferred into breeding reality and showmanship.

    In relation to that, the words 'breed modernization' were used a lot, but what did this all to our beloved Afghan Hound? How far are we away from basics?

    Time for a SWOT-analysis!
    Where do we stand? What are currently the strengths, the weaknesses, the opportunities and threats for the breed?

    During the Amsterdam congress we will dive into these questions and will also present related topics and Afghan Hound scene observations.

    On this website we will timely publish all relevant information about the congress and side events. Keep an eye on the 'latest News' box on top of this page.

    We are very much looking forward to create this next, global Afghan Hound platform, where fanciers from all over the world can meet!
