Crufts Essentials

So for any newbie Crufts visitors out there I thought I would put together a few essential facts and figures so you can brush up on some Crufts basics in one quick read.

  • First Crufts show was in 1891
  • Founder was Charles Cruft
  • Crufts is a celebration of dogs and highlights the diverse role they play
  • Crufts is run by The Kennel Club
  • At the Crufts show you will find hundreds of trade stands, loads of displays and events and plenty of knowledgable doggy people to ask for advice.
  • The first ever winner of Best in Show was a Greyhound called Primley Sceptre
  • Around 26,000 dogs will be at Crufts 2012
  • 21,029 dogs at Crufts 2012 will be in the judging line
  • More 4 will be the channel broadcasting the show, along with Cruft's You Tube channel.
  • Last years winner was a flat coated Retriever called The Kentuckian
  • Crufts 2012 runs from the 8th to the 11th March
I'll keep it short and sweet, I know I shouldn't go off my attention span (non existant!) but I think there is such a thing as information overload....
