Ladies and Gentlemen,
I would like to welcome all participants and supporters of this year's edition of the World Tracking Championship - a beautiful discipline which shows that dogs and humans make a great team.
From the dawn of time, dogs have accompanied people in many different areas of life. They appear as faithful helpers, partners and friends.
I am very happy that the Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship will be an arena for the struggle of the best tracking dogs and their handlers, who came to our region from all over the world.
I wish success and an exciting competition for all participants. For the fans who will follow the struggle I wish a lot of fun and joy from watching "sport dogs".
Marshal of the Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship
