We want to celebrate and share the amazing stories of how dogs give back to us every day of our lives. There will be one winner per category, decided through a public vote and the overall winner will be announced in the main Arena at Crufts 2020. 

The winner will also be awarded £5,000 and the runners up will each receive (for their nominated canine charity) £1,000 from the Kennel Club Charitable Trust – helping to make a difference for dogs.
