Welcome to the FCI- IGP World Championship for Tracking Dogs in Tapioszentmarton, Hungary.

The international tracking dog sport finds its yearly high point in the FCI-IGP-FH World Championship. The 2021 FCI IGP World Championship for Tracking Dogs will take place in the Kincsem Equestrian Park in Tapioszentmarton.

Tapioszentmarton, with about 6000 inhabitants, is a place in the Pest country in central Hungary. provides many interesting touristic places.

With regards to this FCI World Championship for Tracking Dogs, we should pause and think for a few moments about our four-legged friends, helpers, and lifetime companions. Being together with this wonderful animal is a foundation of human survival and a source of respect for nature and all living creatures. Whether it is for competition, companionship, assistance, security or search and rescue, in good and bad times, dogs are man’s best friend. All dog handlers, especially those entering this competition, prove that training dogs is worthwhile and should also be fun for both, dog and dog handler.

The permanent, sport-orientated training of our tracking-dogs from the lowest up to the highest level of a world championship, offers useful information to all responsible and success-oriented breeders. In addition, at the world championship it is a demonstration of a dog’s stability and ability under the pressure of examination and the public eye.

Organizing a World Championship requires many days and long hours of preparation, voluntary work and a lot of effort and stress. At this point my special thanks go our host Imre Palffi and all the members of the teams who did all this work.

My thanks also go to the tracklayers who have to walk about 90, more or less equal tracks, so that the participants will have similar conditions during the World Championship.

I wish all the best to all competitors, who managed to pass through qualifications in their home countries. I also whish the best to the judges who need a wealth of experience and a full measure of objectivity to be able to observe and mark the competitors fairly.

I hope all the competitors, guest and friends of dog sport will enjoy their stay at the Kincsem Equestrian Park and experience the hospitality of the Hungarian people first-hand.

May the competition run smoothly and according to plan and may it be a success.
