The European section of the FCI brings together 51 national kennel clubs all over Europe and is highly engaged in the defence and promotion of pedigree dogs. With this event, the FCI aimed to raise awareness to the importance of dogs to society. A number of Belgian organisations (OS'MOSE, Brussels Police Dog Unit, Activ'Dog, GERCCMA and Fondation I See) made demonstrations about the work they do with dogs (medical assistance, guide dogs, mobility assistance, narcotic detection, police and rescue operations). Participants also heard more about the concept of dog responsible ownership in Europe and existing projects like the CAROdog Platform.
