Wavre Things to Do

  • The church of St John the Baptist

    We had only an hour walk around the centre of the city.The Gothic-style church of St John the Baptist was built in 1475. Its main tower houses a 50-bell carillon. The city hall dates from the 18th century. It is housed in the former church of the Carmelites and features a cloistered courtyard. Since about 200 years ago, the Grand Tour, a religious...

  • Six Flags Belgium

    This is one of Six Flags Park. I found it better than the one in Montreal. The rides are very hot and there is more activities to do. With your ticket you can go 1 hour in the pool park named Aqualibi. You can take a pass for the day with the train, it is cheaper than the ticket itself. You can take a pass for the year that is good for all sixflags...

Wavre Transportation

  • TT Russian Lada-2111

    Are you impressed by the Russian car that could overcome 3500 km to Wavre and 2600 km back home? Yes, it did it! More than that – it was its (or, better her, because we thought our car was a girl) 5th ride to Europe since 1999. We were very grateful to our car and sticked 5 stickers-emblems which you can see in the cabin. Every emblem proves that...

  • How to get to Wavre

    If we wanted to watch FCI IPO WM and come to Wavre from Moscow we would take a flight Moscow-Brussels (2242 km) and get to Wavre by train (30 km).But we were with our Asslan and that’s why we would drive 2597 km by our Russian car Lada-2111 via Warsaw, Berlin and Cologne.But we had to take part in the German shepherd show SV BSZS in Ulm and visit...

Wavre Local Customs

  • Friendly people

    Our hotel was full of participants of the World Championship from all over the world. They were like a big family of dog training fans. And we felt like a part of this great family - we were almost the only from Russia and Irina was happy. She was only in sorrow that she was only a watcher but not a participant. But it wasn't her fault. She was...

  • Been stamped?

    Have you ever been stamped? We have been stamped at our arms in Wavre every morning three days when we came to the stadium to watch dog training championship! It was a way to mark every visitor of the competition to give them opportunities to come to the stadium and leave it, and come again many times showing to the guards their stamps. Good idea,...

    When you are on the stadium you can’t see how dogs working their tracking tests – usually it’s on fields.The depth of difficulty differs based on the title being worked towards, but tracking is all about testing a dog’s ability to not only scent but also about his ability to stay focused enough to follow the scent without distraction or...

  • IPO: Protection

    This is the most exciting of the three phases of training and is normally the one the general public focuses on. During training and trialing, there must be a ‘helper’ to do protection work. A helper is the person that will be wearing the padded bite sleeve. This person will also be concealed behind a blind and at more than point during the test...

  • IPO:Obedience

    We spent three day on the stadium watching how dogs were working.When you are on the stadium you can see only two phases: Obedience and Protection.The obedience work is of a high level that is designed to test the dog’s intelligence, desire to work and please its handler, its ability to take directions from its handler, and its ability to work...
