The 5th meeting of supporters and owners of the Czech Mountain Dog breed took place in the Jizera Mountains, under the baton of Andrea Šímová and with the participation of all possible rendering variants and with a wide representation of kennels. Together with our Bailyes, we and a group of other breeders chose the slightly distant Hejnice campsite as our base and then walked to Bílý potok together. The theme of the weekend meeting was "Nature, behavior and training of the Czech Mountain Dog".

Saturday was dedicated to the hike up Mount Smědava, which troubled us a bit with the changeable weather, when we gradually climbed from the foggy valley to the sunny peaks of the mountains. Different routes were available for the participants, so the crowd that started together from the campsite gradually dispersed over the local hills according to their experience and strength. Both dogs and owners covered between 17 and 25 km on this day and after a short rest they enjoyed another program with demonstrations of "How to handle your torch better", ending with the "Give me your paw" skills competition.
