We've been busy signing ourselves up to attend lots of dog related shows this year. We're keeping our fingers crossed that they're able to go ahead as we can't wait to get out and about again and meet our lovely customers!
Read on to find out about:
- All About Dogs
- Dog Fest
- Paws in the Park
- Chatsworth Country Fair
First up is Crufts at Birmingham NEC in Solihull from Thursday 10th to Sunday 13th March 2022. Crufts is the largest show of its kind in the world and is run by The Kennel Club.
At Crufts you can see 20,000 dogs competing for the world-class title of Crufts Best in Show. There is an arena showcasing fantastic displays and competitions including dog agility, flyball, obedience and heelwork to music. Discover Dogs is an area that hosts over 200 breeds of pedigree dog for you to meet. So if you're looking for a new dog but unsure which breed would suit you its the best place to go to learn more. With over 550 trade stands, including our own, you can shop til' you drop for doggie related gifts.
Crufts is broadcast in the UK on Channel 4 and More4.
We love that we get to meet lots of our customers face to face at Crufts including our international customers as the show attracts visitors from far and wide. We're even more excited to attend in 2022 as the whole show has been cancelled for a few years in a row now (thanks very much Covid!)
