Kennel Club entry figures for dfs Crufts this week
revealed that 21,422 dogs will be competing, a small drop of 400.

Overall, the biggest increases in the number of dogs entered are amongst Tibetan Terriers
(up 59 from 138 to 197 dogs), Rhodesian Ridgebacks (up 47 from 160 to 207 dogs),
Whippets (up 47 from 390 to 437 dogs), and French Bulldogs (up 40 from 126 to 166 dogs).

Proportionally, the breeds with the largest year-on-year increases for their breed include the German Pinscher (up 162.5 percent, from 8 to 21 dogs), the Chesapeake Bay Retriever
(up 123 percent from 26 to 58 dogs) and the Coton de Tulear
(up 78.9 percent from 19 to 34 dogs).

Overall, the number of dogs competing has fallen by 2.4 percent compared to last year, but the greatest proportion of the fall has come from amongst those breeds that were traditionally docked and that are no longer allowed to be shown. Amongst the dogs with the biggest numerical drops are traditionally docked breeds including Boxers (down by 67 from 254 to 187), Cocker Spaniels (down by 48 from 394 to 346), Yorkshire Terriers (down 45 from 128 to 83), German Shorthaired Pointers (down 44 from 179 to 135), Rottweilers (down 43 from 315 to 272) and Dobermanns (down 42 from 220 to 178). In total, 75 percent of the overall fall of dog numbers between 2010 and 2011 came from the traditionally docked breeds.
