When does Crufts start?

As mentioned, Crufts starts TODAY (March 10, 2022), at the NEC in Birmingham.

This will be the first show since 2020, as the pandemic put a stop to thefun in 2021.

More than 20,000 dogs will take part in displays and competitions.

Aside from Best in Show, highlights will include Scruffts, the crossbreed competition, and The Kennel Club Dog Hero Award, for dogs that provide lifetime service, support and love.

Which dogs are competing in Crufts 2022?

Over 200 pedigree dog breeds will compete to take the title of Best in Show.

Crufts will also welcome breeds never before seen at the dog show – the Smooth Faced Pyrenean Sheepdog – with two competing in the Imported Breed Register classes.

Compared with 2020, this year has seen an increase of 40 per cent or more in the number of Irish water spaniel, sloughi, lowchen (little lion dog) and Canadian eskimo dog breeds entering competitions.

The dogs with the highest number in their breeds

  • Working – Bernese mountain dog (140)
  • Utility – dalmatian (202)
  • Toy – pug (223)
  • Pastoral – border collie (253)
  • Terrier – Staffordshire bull terrier (306)
  • Hound – whippet (382)
  • Gundog – golden retriever (458)

When are the results of Crufts announced?

The Crufts results will be announced on March 13, 2022.

We will then discover who has taken the Best in Show trophy from 2020's winner, wire-haired dachshund Maisie.
