Dear dogsport people,
It is time to organize FCI IGP-FH WCH 2023. The event will take place on 15.-20.5.2023 in Southern Finland, max. 100 km from the capital Helsinki.
The organizers of 2023 Championship competition are very experienced people. Management personnel in charge of this IGP-FH WCH competition have remarkable experience of many world championship and national championship competitions in Finland and abroad. Roles such as competitor, team leader, judge and organizer have varied in events such as FCI IPO WM, WUSV, Bouvier IPO WM, FMBB, IFR IPO WM and NOM. In addition to this, members of the event’s management have also significant experience of national competitions in both FH and IPO.
In Finland, we have a long experience of using working dogs (like police, custom, border guard and army) but also voluntary SAR and numerous dog sports. Finnish dog trainers are internationally respected and have achieved success in dog sports. Finnish dogs also work and rescue around the world.
FH-tracking is highly growing sport, so 2023 World Championship competition will take place in country, were there is a strong boom and lot of new trainers in this sport.
I hope you will accept my invitation to visit Finland and see our beautiful and clean nature with it‘s several forests and lakes. In my opinion May is the most beautiful time of year in Finland. After long winter nature is full of life, birds are singing and sun is shining.
Welcome to Finland
