Crufts is back this March and no one is more excited than us here at GroomArts Academy (it'll be our 7th year)!
The show has been running since 1891, and after more than 100 years, it now has 22,000 dogs take part to compete for the world-renowned title Best In Show.
There will be 2.5 million people watching on TV at home on Channel 4 and More 4, and every day there are over 5,000 dogs taking part in competitions. There's also thousands of people demonstrating, taking part in events and exhibiting... Including us! We'll be in Hall 2 Stand 75a so come and see us and watch some of our fabulous demonstrations.
Each day is broken down into different breeds before the Best In Show at the end of each day, and the final at the end of the four days. There's also an Obedience Ring at the start of each day.
- Day 1 - Thursday, March 5 - Toy and Utility breeds
- Day 2 - Friday, March 6 - Gundog breeds
- Day 3 - Saturday, March 7 - Working and Pastoral breeds
- Day 4 - Sunday, March 8 - Hound and Terrier breeds and Best In Show
Each day runs from 8.15am to 6.30pm, though Best In Show is from 4.45pm to 9pm on Sunday.
