Letter to all participants of the EALC & NALC Catahoula Show 2017 in Mitrov Farm/Czech Republic:

Dear EALC members, dear Catahoulafriends,

22405968_691315944392996_3928168452694659869_nWe would like to thank you again for your coming. Through your participation in the EALC & NALC Catahoula Show 2017, you have made the event for the biggest Catahoula meeting in Europe so far! And you supported the idea of the EALC, the working community for the Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog in Europe. Thank you for that! Also we have been able to deepen our cooperation with the NALC, the original breeding organization for Louisiana Catahoulas based in Denham Springs/Louisiana.

The spirit of the event was clearly noticeable – a very friendly and fair coexistence, good conversations and just fun on all 4 days.
Around 60 Louisiana Catahoulas from 6 European countries were there and almost all were registered for at least one working discipline and many for the NALC Conformation Show.

No matter what position you have reached in the working disciplines and if it has maybe not gone so well for some of you in some competition – we find it great that you showed your Catahoulas at work!! This is the goal of all of our events. And the next competitions are coming .

You have inspired and motivated us to continue! Many thanks also to the many helpers, to the judges, to Karel Kalny, boss of the Mitrov farm and to Winston and Kelly Beavert of the NALC – it was so great to have you here! You had the longest journey over the “big see”.

22448225_691315947726329_893972752841488812_nAlso in 2018 there will be 2-3 EALC events. This time without competitions but with workshops in different disciplines (Herding, Mantrailing, SAR, Tracking, BikeJöring etc.)
Dates are available at the beginning of next year on this website in events.
Here you can also find the membership application when you are interested.
For this article, we have selected photos of Blue Numa II (aka Ayra) and Indigo Louis Sumici kridla. This two guys were the oldest Catahoulas of the event with their 10.5 years. Both have still participated in working competitions and have reached a total of 3 placements under the first 3. Moreover Indigo has provided his profile for the Logo of the EALC .
At this point, many thanks to Sylvia Klausen, who designed the Logo for us 5 years ago.

See you soon, your EALC team
