Crufts, the world’s largest dog show, will be returning to the NEC in March!
Crufts celebrates dogs all over the world and people travel far and wide to both partake in the show and to watch all the fantastic dogs in action. Thousands of dogs and their owners will head to the NEC to compete for the prestigious title of Crufts Best in Show, with a vast range of competitors including the fresh talent of the Young Kennel Club. Be exhilarated with world-class Agility, Flyball, Heelwork to Music and more, and admire the discipline and precise work of those competing in Obedience.
Join the emotional rollercoaster of the Eukanuba Friends for Life competition, as we celebrate dog heroes who have made a difference, and visit the Kennel Club breed rescue stand to see all the amazing work the team are doing to promote the welfare of abandoned and homeless dogs. There really is something for everyone at Crufts and it offers the perfect family day out for all dog lovers!
We have over 16,500 parking spaces at the NEC, which means less time searching for a spot and more time enjoying the show.
