Previouusly known as Mr Puppy Europe
Whoever is elected to the Puppy UK title is also invited to compete in the European Pups and Handlers Contest (EPAHC), the European-wide regional Pups & Handlers title held annually at Darklands in Antwerp.
This year, Pup Thaly succeeded in being placed as the Title Holder for 2022.
European Puppy i s a regional title for pups from across continental Europe, and welcomes contestants from many different countries. His mission is to advocate for and support the Pups & Handlers community across Europe, and additionally to support Puppy title holders in different countries to help their own local communities.
It is a key feature of the European Pups and Handlers Contest that pups from different nations work together towards a common goal, and in a common spirit of fraternity. Dutch and British pups have been working closely together from the very beginning, since the first contest, joined every year by more and more pups from more and more countries. We all believe that we are one family, and one community.
British pups have been involved with EPAHC since its very beginnings, and the UK is proud to be a strong supporter of EPAHC and its mission to advocate and support for Pups & Handlers across continental Europe.
There were 6 pups entered in to the contest.

Mr Puppy Europe V: 2020
For the sixth edition of Mr Puppy Europe, Pup Trumpet was there to represent the U.K. and competed alongside 5 other pups from other countries. Sadly, although 5 were registered to compete, the Italian Title Holder had to depart early due to the Covid-19 Virus causing his county to go into lockdown, and so he had to head home early. Regardless though, the Mr Puppy Europe Team have decided that he will still be a part of the Pack of 2020.
We are really pleased that Trumpet did us all very proud by earning the gold medal and bringing home the Mr Puppy Europe title for the second year running!
