We hope to have copies available at £19.99 from our stand at Driffield this weekend.

The 2007 Glee Exhibition, Birmingham saw the official trade launch of the first Crufts DVD release, which features highlights from the past three years of action at the famous show.

Recognised as the largest and most prestigious dog show in the world, Crufts is now a major international event, attracting over 150,000 visitors and 25,000 dogs annually.

Crufts: The Ultimate Collection (RRP £19.99) was released at Glee last Monday, and the launch was attended by the current Best in Show titleholder, Ch/Am Ch Araki Fabulous Willy with owner Neil Smith, plus members of the Kennel Club’s press and marketing team, Sara Ward and Helen Fox. Also present were Crufts Show Manager Vanessa McAlpine together with Andrew Palmer, the Sale Director of ILC media who have produced the DVD for the Kennel Club.

The three disc set features the highlights of the Group Judging and Best in Show at the 2005, 2006, and 2007 events, providing dog lovers the chance to relive the dog showing action from each event. With Crufts attracting a global audience that is unrivalled by any similar event, there is clearly a market for the DVD, and with this inaugural release containing nearly four hours of action, the set certainly offers value for money.

Dog lovers can watch as entrants compete to achieve the coveted title of ‘Best in Show’, as thousands of dogs go head to head to see who should be crowned champion. The DVD set rounds up all of the action from the Group Judging and Best in Show where the very top dogs from the show compete.

Along with a selection of interviews with key personalities from the dog show world, viewers are treated to all of the action that secured the top accolade achieved by Tibetan Terrier, Ch Araki Fabulous Willy in 2007, Australian Shepherd Am Ch Caitland Isle Take A Chance in 2006, and Norfolk Terrier Ch Cracknor Cause Celebre in 2005, as well as all of the highlights from the rest of the shows.

Andrew Palmer of ILC Media, told Vince Hogan of Our Dogs, ‘I am a dog owner myself with a six year old Westie and I love watching Crufts on TV. This DVD is a great way to review the last three years, and we intend to enhance future coverage in an ongoing series.’

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary said, ‘We are really pleased to announce the launch of this DVD to the general public. This is the first time that this type of footage has been made available to such a wide audience and we hope that it will help to promote the show, dog showing and pedigree dogs. The DVD is available now from OUR DOGS. Fiona Simpson, Our Dogs Mail Order Manager said, ‘This is the DVD we have been asked for all around the world and its here now, and in stock. We feel sure that our many customers in the UK and especially around the world will love this DVD set . . . just in time for Christmas of course!’
