Welcome to the homepage of the Dutch Afghan Hound World Congress

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.

In the various sections of this website, you will find all relevant information about the congress, which as leading title 'Back To Basics' has. This also means that we would like to provide a look at the past and compare to the current status of the breed.

Various speakers will present important elements of today's Afghan Hound scene. The 'Open Forum' will be the platform where plenary discussions about the breed will take place.

Just after the congress, the World Dog Show week will start, including the FCI European Sighthound Show on Friday the 10th.

The Dutch congress committee is very much looking forward to meet you in Amsterdam during this global Afghan Hound event! Don't miss it!

The 2018 AHWC congress committee likes to draw your attention to the following:
The congress hotel informed us that room reservations come in without using the specific hotel reservation form as can be found on the congress website under 'venue information'.
This means that the negotiated room rates will not be applicable! You will pay more. We will try, in cooperation with the hotel, to correct already recieved bookings without form.

Please do absolutely use the hotel reservation form when making room reservations.
