3rd March 2014
This week, I’ll be making my annual pilgrimage to the NEC in Birmingham for the largest dog show in the world – Crufts. I’m looking forward to my third year at the biggest event in the canine calendar, reporting for Channel 4 and More 4. Although I don't think I'll be hurdling against the flyball competitors this year - that was just a one-off for the Olympic year that was 2012!
We’ll be bringing you highlights of the day’s action every evening during the four-day show, including the agility and flyball competitions and of course the judging of the Group finalists. I’ll be exploring stories around the show (things like how to train your puppy) and we will also talk about dog health and welfare. Other highlights include Scruffts and the much-loved Friends for Life competition. This year also sees the winner of Superstar Dogs – Countdown to Crufts crowned at the show.
