It’s that time of year again! 25,000 dogs, 210 breeds, 7 groups and 1 Best in Show. As the most renowned and certainly the biggest in the world, Crufts is truly the world cup of Dog Showing.
Crufts is simply four days of celebration of man’s best friend. As well as Best in Show, there are a huge number of activities besides; the Scruffts final, flyball, heelwork to music and agility action in the main ring, Discover Dogs, a reading corner where children can read to special reading dogs, educational areas, a breed health zone, hundreds of trade stands to shop from and much more. The dog showing world is a multi million pound industry and there is no better place to see that than Crufts and many businesses such as dog food and equipment heavily depend on it as a source of income.
The atmosphere is always exhilarating but for once I wasn’t exhibiting any dogs, so this gave me a great chance to network and blog. One of the things I did get a chance to do was to interview Dog Law Specialist Trevor Cooper from Dogs Trust and Cooper & Co Solicitors here.
