One of the highlights of a Heelwork to Music (HTM) competitor's career is the opportunity to compete in front of an audience of thousands at Crufts.
Each year Crufts hosts the finals of both Heelwork to Music and Freestyle competitions. All 'Advanced' level dogs and handlers can qualify for Crufts by entering one or more of a series of qualifying events held throughout the year.
The Crufts Semi Finals will take place at the Sport Connexion, Ryton, Coventry, on the 19 January 2019. To find out who has qualified, click here.
Semi Final Qualifier shows will take place from the 23 March 2019, please click here for a list of dates and venues.
All Crufts qualifying competitions are judged under the appropriate Kennel Club Regulations in force at the time of the event. To be eligible to enter these classes, dogs must be eligible to compete in Advanced classes. Both the competition organisers and the Kennel Club reserve the right to verify a dog's eligibility to compete.
Crufts also caters for Heelwork to Music's growing international following by hosting the Kennel Club Crufts International Freestyle Competition. The competition is open to one competitor from each country, including one from Great Britain.
