Pet lovers who wish to share a peaceful, beautiful environment with their canine companions would do well to visit Crosswinds Swiss Luxury Resort, which is 100-hectares of lush green residential resort property set in one of the highest and breeziest areas of Tagaytay, with more than 23,000 pine trees filling the air with their fresh, sweet scent. The architecture of Crosswinds takes inspiration from the picturesque chalets of Switzerland. This haven of fresh breezes, pine trees, and breath-taking views hosted an event exclusive for dog lovers and their four-legged friends belonging to the Cavite Canine Club.
The Cavite Canine Club held its all-breeds dog shows—the 123rd, 124th, and 125th–at the Crosswinds, with more than 250 dogs participating in each show. Participants from all over the Philippines joined the shows, which were officiated by Mr. Ekarat Sangkunakup from Thailand; Dr. Andi Hudono from Indonesia; and Dr. Jose Mendiola from the Philippines.
Different canine breeds were featured in the competition including American Cockers; Golden Retrievers; Labrador Retrievers; Jack Russell Terriers; Beagles; Chihuahuas; Pekingese; French Bulldogs; Pugs; Shih Tzus; Boxers; Bulldogs; Dobermans; Great Danes; Minipins; Chowchows; Pomeranians, and Siberian Huskies.
Amid the verdant, picturesque setting provided by Crosswinds and the fellowship, goodwill, and camaraderie among the participants, everyone had an enjoyable, memorable time during the event, which lasted from 10 am to 8 pm. The success of the dog shows was made possible through the support of Senators Manny and Cynthia Villar, as well as Mr. Martin John Lim of Crosswinds Resort Suites and Ms. Joan Patricia Dial, Division Head of Brittany Corporation.
The Cavite Canine Club was organized in the year 2000. Since then, it has been organizing dog shows in Cavite as well as conducting seminars for dog owners and exhibitors to teach them the proper way to ensure proper nutrition and good health for their canine friends. The Club is also an accredited LGU by the Municipality of Kawit. It is presently under the leadership of its Club President, Mr. Eduardo Sy.
