Crufts entry details released


Crufts will welcome 22,964 dogs competing for the prestigious title of Best in Show; over 600 more than last year.  Crufts 2008 has narrowly missed breaking the show’s all-time record by just 27 dogs!  The entry for March’s show is 25546 from 22964 dogs.

Crufts achieved its best ever entry figure during its centenary year in 1991 when the event moved to the NEC in Birmingham for the first time. Overseas entries have also increased dramatically; Crufts 2008 will see 1,177 dogs from overseas take to the ring to compete, an increase of more than 200 on 2007.  Crufts has always attracted a huge number of competitors and visitors alike, and the event just keeps on growing.
