Nominate your Friend for Life

The DFS Crufts Friends for Life competition is organised by the Kennel Club, which celebrates heart-warming stories of friendship in adversity, where dogs have truly earned the title of man’s best friend, through bravery, support or companionship.

Nominations have already been flooding in and the Kennel Club is now making a final call for nominations from people who feel that their life, or the life of somebody that they know, has been changed dramatically by their dog. The deadline for nominations is 20 December and the final five will be announced early in the New Year. The winner will be chosen by public vote and will be announced on Sunday 14 March 2010 in the main arena at the NEC in Birmingham, before the grand finale of the DFS Crufts Best in Show award.

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club spokesperson, said: “Friends for Life is just one aspect of DFS Crufts that celebrates the diverse role that dogs play in society and the way that they enrich our lives.”
To nominate a dog please email details of why you think the dog should win the award to Andrea Peters at Or you can write to Andrea Peters, The Kennel Club, 1-5 Clarges Street, Piccadilly, London W1J 8AB.
