Crufts Was AMAZING way better than I would have even expected. On Saturday we went to see the Heelwork to Music internationals, Flyball Semis, Agility International large finals, Flyball final and presentations, also looked at shops, the junior handling and met Victoria Stilwell and Claire Balding The Agility was the best to watch but all was amazing.
|I met the amazing Victoria Stilwell, her books are incredible! give them a read!|
|This clever Great Dane did some fabulous training demonstrations! He used paw pads and balance boards to demonstrate his obedience.|
|If you watched Ant and Dec's Saturday night takeaway you would have seen them hjacking the goldie display team!|
|I have now got Claire Baldings novels, this friendly lady was lovely, now to read my new books!|
|An amazing bond- The RAF teams presented the talents of the canine members|
|recognize these superstars from their tv-ads?|
|I met my favorite breed the Shetland Sheepdog at Discover dogs|
|I wanted to steal this one! She starred in an agility demo in the Activity ring|
|My personal preference in the Heelwork Internationals was for this Shirley Bassey piece|
I would recommend a day trip to Crufts to any dog lover. Its not all grooming and prancing although the majority those dogs do live enriched lives out of the show ring too! If watching BOB is not your cup of tea their is still plenty to get up to at Crufts- Scruffts, Friends for Life, Flyball and The tunnel of temptation for example. Crufts offers a place to get advice for sports training, grooming or showing, or simply a chance to watch dog and owner bonds and fast paced fun! I do realise not everyone shares these views and I do respect everyone's opinions. However mine is that Crufts is an excellent celebration of all things dog!
One final thing to consider when planning a visit in 2016... Shopping, its a few days since I got back and Marnie is feeling well and truly SPOILT!
|BAGS... ONLY FROM DAY 2!|
|My haul including Victoria Stilwell and Canine partners t-shirts, a Becorope and Anco root chew for Marnie and lots of free samples and goody bags|
