WELCOME

Dear Samoyed people all around the globe – breeders, owners, judges, fans and friends,

Dear Samoyed people all around the globe – breeders, owners, judges and fans and friends,
We all share a common interest – we care deeply about the well-being of our beautiful breed. We feel now it is the time to talk about the future of the Samoyed breed, as we all face some serious problems these days. It makes us think about what the future holds for our breed? How can we influence it? What can we do to preserve the features, character and working abilities of Samoyeds? …. And that exactly is going to be our main topic throughout the 6th WSM 2022, Hlohovec, Slovakia.

We wish to continue the tradition of Worl Samoyed Meetings, first time introduced in Italy in 2003, then followed by the 2-nd WSM in Bratislava, Slovakia, 3-rd one in
UK in 2012, 4-th WSM taking place in Australia in 2015 and 5-th in Estonia in 2019.

Let us enjoy those 4 days dedicated to Samoyeds to the fullest. During the WSM we will have many interesting presentations, discussions, we will meet many old friends and get to know many more new ones, and last, but not least – enjoy it, because we are going to have some fun too as it is typical for Slovak nation. Slovaks are very hospitable and fun loving people, but we are also hard-working and reliable. We hope our WSM will be a success and we will do everything to fulfill it.

To enjoy our programme to the fullest, we recommend you to stay until Monday morning. For accommodation information, show agenda, venues, Conference and Club stalls, please see separate sections of these pages.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if any questions. Looking forward to seeing you all!

your WSM team
