Breeders Competition

Breeders Competition

Originally launched on January 15th 2009, the prestigious Breeders' Competition, sponsored by Agria Pet Insurance, makes a return at Crufts 2019. The competition gives breeders the opportunity to showcase their skill and knowledge as a breeder. 

Each year a number of qualifying heats take place at General and Group Championship shows. Teams compete to gain points by being placed between 1st - 4th. The top 40 teams will qualify for the final at Crufts 2019, of which two positions will be for the Breeders Competition winners from the European and World Dog Shows.
