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. In 2021, the freestyle finals will be held on Thursday 10 March and the HTM finals will be held on Friday 11 March. 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.
