Dogs from all around the UK and the rest of the word are warming up to take their place at the 120th anniversary year of the world’s greatest dog show, dfs Crufts.
Taking place from March 10th – 13th at the NEC Birmingham, dfs Crufts 2011 is set to be an exciting year with around 28,000 dogs due in attendance.
As well as the prestigious Best in Show final, dogs and owners will also be competing in a variety of competitions including the International Agility Championship and the popular Friends for Life contest, full of heart-warming stories of friendship in adversity, where dogs have truly earned the title of man’s best friend through bravery, support or companionship. This year the show will once again be televised on More4.
dfs Crufts is a celebration of the relationship between dogs and their owners, and full of events that showcase the diverse role that dogs play in society. To find out about competitors taking part from your area, please contact the Kennel Club Press Office on 020 7518 1008 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for contact details of local entrants for interview.

We are very excited about this year’s event and we'll be showing our visitors how important dogs are in our lives. dfs Crufts is a unique opportunity for dog lovers to come together to make a real difference for dogs.”
