HAQ Publishing have been proud to support Crufts and exhibit at the show every year for over a decade.
2014 saw Crufts with over 21000 dogs competing for Best in Show and a spattering of celebrities attending the show and this year’s event is expected to be even more impressive.
First held in 1891 with under 2,500 entries, Crufts’ success has snowballed and the event is now a massive world-famous celebration of healthy, happy dogs – with over 25000 dogs set to attend in March. The event will be jam-packed with fun activities, interesting trade stands and fantastic events, all showcasing the diverse role that dogs play in society.
The event – one of the most popular at the NEC – is seen as being the greatest dog event on the planet and this is partly down to the sheer size of it; Crufts covers five halls at the NEC, as well as the main Arena, which adds to the buzz and creates an exciting atmosphere.
One of the most popular parts of the event is the Discover Dogs area, where visitors can come and see around 190 different breeds of dog and find out which breed would be perfect for them. There is also a dedicated section for breed rescue volunteers, who work to ensure that unwanted and abandoned dogs find a good home. Visitors can also learn about Kennel Club Assured Breeders, who put the health and happiness of their puppies first and ensure all necessary health checks are carried out – so this area is definitely worth a visit.
Welfare charities, veterinary organisations and experts from across the whole spectrum of the dog world come together for Crufts to help promote healthy and happy dogs as well as encourage people to responsibly breed, buy, train and care for their dogs in a fun and engaging way. Health is at the heart of the show and Crufts is the world’s best platform to talk to experts about how we can work together to ensure that man is and always remains a dog’s best friend.
