Welcome

The rescue dog organisation ‘Redningshunden Danmark’ (RDA), host of the 21st IRO Worldchampionship for Rescue Dogs 2015 in cooperation with the International Rescue Dog Organisation (IRO), wishes you a warm welcome to Denmark!


A warm welcome to all rescue dogs and rescue dog handlers!

On behalf of the city Aalborg I am very pleased to welcome you for the Worldchampionship for Rescue Dogs in 2015. I would like to welcome especially the rescue dogs as well as the dog handlers, IRO Judges and representatives.

We are very happy and proud that IRO chose Aalborg as a host for the 21st IRO Worldchampionship for Rescue Dogs.

It is not the first time that RDA organises events in Aalborg and I take it as a very positive signal that this time it is even a Worldchampionship. Aalborg will do everything that is possible to give everyone a fantastic experience.

I’m pretty sure that you will experience Aalborg as festive and joyful city. We have many exciting events in Aalborg and we begin to slowly mingle with the European cities, which can offer a lot of good and positive experiences to their citizens and their guests.

I am sure that in about a year, every visitor of the Worldchampionship will have a few good days in Aalborg – and we look forward to welcoming you at the World Championship in September 2015.

See you soon in Aalborg!
