Crufts figures defy all expectations


Crufts LogoFollowing hot on the heels of the news of an increase in the number of pedigree puppies registered in 2008, the Kennel Club has announced that the official entry figure for this year’s Crufts confirms the ongoing overwhelming popularity of dogs.

Around 28,000 dogs are expected to attend Crufts 2009, with a total of 22,677 dogs entered into breed judging and the Agility and Obedience Championships. This represents one of the highest entry figures yet.

Following on from last year’s overseas entry, which topped the 1,000 mark for the first time, and this year’s show is set to follow suit.

Caroline Kisko told us: ‘We are absolutely delighted that the Crufts entry figure once again proves that the unique bond between humans and dogs is both remarkable and unbreakable. We look forward to welcoming the many thousands of competitors and visitors alike to the show, and hope that they all take away a great experience of finding out everything that is great about the company of happy and healthy dogs.’
