It's our Crufts ticket giveaway time again!



For the third year in a row, we are thrilled to be going back to Crufts this year!   And to celebrate, we have been kindly given a pair of tickets by the Kennel Club for a giveaway.  These tickets can be used on a day of your choice - the only restriction is the Best In Show on the Sunday evening.


So when is Crufts?


Crufts is taking place this year on the 9-12th March - and as usual, it will be at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham.   For more information on the event, and to buy tickets,  visit the Crufts website.


What's on?


Crufts is a huge event, and there is all sorts to appeal to all visitors!

  • 5 halls of Shopping Heaven - over 400 stands with special treats and offers for you and your dog
  • The Arena - holding over 6,000 dog fans and action packed throughout all four days with Agility, Flyball, Showing and lots of great fun displays and competitions, including the Scruffts final! Saturday can get particularly busy, so you might need to be patient for a space. Sunday from 2pm is the Best in Show programme which requires an additional ticket.
  • Eukanuba Discover Dogs – meet, greet and discover around 200 breeds of pedigree dogs
  • 36 Showing Rings where you can watch your favourite breeds all day long
  • Young Kennel Club ring where competitors from 8-24 enjoy their own ‘junior Crufts’
  • Good Citizen Dog Scheme display ring where you can learn that all dogs can enjoy being a good canine citizen
  • Dog Activities Display Ring where you can learn about how to get involved in all the many great fun dog activities such as agility, gundog training, rally, and so much more.

So has that whetted your appetite?  We will be attending as usual on Gundog day, which is Saturday 11th March this year - do stop us to say hello if you see us! Hooman will be the harrassed looking woman with an overexcited cocky spangle in one hand, and a camera in the other.  Mostly to be found around the Cocker Spaniel showing rings!  

Last year we were super lucky to meet Victoria Stilwell in the press office!  Given that I hugely embarrassed the Hooman by grubbing around on the floor for dropped Tuna pasta, she was absolutely lovely and posed for a photo for us.  



The competition is a raffle style entry at the bottom of this post - the only mandatory entry is to provide an email address for our mailing list (we would ask that people please play fair - sometimes people don't, which just causes so much more work for us as we do verify them), but then you can gain extra "entries' by getting involved on our Instagram / Twitter / Facebook pages, or even just commenting below!  This will run till midnight Friday, to give us plenty of time to get them posted out.  Unfortunately this competition is only valid for UK entries.

Good luck!

  4. Marmite (our working black cocker spaniel) likes to send us to Crufts to find new and exciting goodies for him and his companions (our 2 x GSD's)! A squeaky toy is an essential to bring back along with some treats...

  5. I would love to explore all the different breeds, as well as take my Pug CiCi so we could have a doggy-day out :)

  6. Peruse the stalls looking for books and brainteaser toys, watch my friend's dog being shown, talk to the people in the Discover Dogs area about Polish Lowlands and Havanese to decide whether I might add one to our family, watch some agility and HTM, spend more money then stagger back to the car hoping that at least one of us can remember where we left it.

  7. I'd take my daughter to look at all of the beautiful dogs. We went years ago and had a fab time. I'd love to share it with my little girl.

  8. I enjoy the enthusiasm and general happiness of Crufts with people sharing their love of all the different breeds. I would like to visit the breeders stands to talk to owners and visit the arena to watch the agility shows.

  10. We're always so happy to see you, Lottie! I don't think we'll make it all the way across the Pond, but we'll be sure to check out Crufts on TV. Hope you have lots of fun! Please say hello to all of our fellow cocker spaniels you meet there for me! Your friend Chester L. W. Spaniel

  13. On my to do list would be some shopping for my little girl (puppy) and because I've seen on telly all the wonderful stalls they have.
    To learn maybe some tips and tricks on training and getting the most out of my relationship with my pup.
    I'd also love meeting all the dogs around the show, and watching them compete in the rings! Especially the agility shows.

    ...I'll also enjoy having a little chuckle inside at some of the more "fancy" breeds!
