This much-loved annual dog event starts from 10 - 13 March 2022, and is hosted at its usual site, the NEC, Birmingham.

Besides admiring the standard of top breeds, Crufts also promotes Scruffts, the Nation's favourite crossbreed. Fun is emphasised, as well as responsible dog ownership, and anyone can participate.

Amongst the different breeds that are showcased throughout five halls at the NEC, there will be a variety of trade stands and breed standard club stands, where you can indulge yourself. This event is also enhanced by the addition of Discover Dogs, where you can go and meet and greet over 200 different breeds of dogs.
