This weekend, the kennel I work with, Ghalya's Hunderparadise, participated in the Sieger German Shepherd Show in Mishref. Sieger means "champion" in German, so it was a German Shepherd Championship. Sometimes things get lost in translation and I actually had to look it up - even though I've been promoting it for several months!
The show was organized by the Kuwait K9 Association (KK9A). They usually hold dog shows/gatherings every Friday afternoon in Kabd in front of the police station. All of their events are free to the public.
They were very concerned about finding an appropriate venue, as most hotels and venues don't want to rent to people for anything dog-related. The Mishref Football Club (located next to Burger King and across from Yarmouk Sports Club) provided the perfect location for both the dog events, and the spectators (as well as placement of vendor booths). The weather was amazing both days and it couldn't have been better.

It was a 2-day event. The first day was beauty and obedience (for show lines) and the second day was for obedience and attack (for work lines).
