Groomers at Crufts 2014
Crufts is one of the largest dog events in the world. No longer purely a dog show, Crufts celebrates every role that dogs play in our lives, and our special relationship with them. Crufts 2014 is hosted once again at the NEC in Birmingham from the 6th to 9th March, and is organised by the British Kennel Club.
The dog show is still the primary focus at Crufts, with all seven types of dog breed represented (hound, working, terrier, gundog, pastoral, utility and toy). These dogs compete towards the prestigious title of ‘Best in Show’, which will be awarded on Sunday. There will also be numerous dog agility shows, obedience training competitions, heelwork to music and breeders competitions.
Another primary focus at Crufts this year is the Discover Dogs area, which offers visitors the opportunity to learn about a wide variety of dog breeds. This year there will be hundreds of assorted dog breeds for visitors to acquaint themselves with, making it ideal for those looking for a new dog or puppy. In this area, you can learn all about the distinctive personalities, traits, looks and needs of 200 recognised pedigree dog breeds. Prospective owners can talk to KC assured breeders and breed experts, as well as gain information on where and how to buy them.
Throughout the weekend, there will be a whole host of other events and activities. Apart from the displays and competitions, there will be seminars, guest speakers and dozens of show rings, as well as over 400 dedicated pet companies exhibiting in the shopping village, which in itself takes up five whole halls at the NEC.
Groomers will be at stall number 126 in hall 5, and we will be available for a chat, and to answer any questions or queries you might have in regard to dog care and grooming. We will also have a wide variety of essential everyday day items, as well as a number of exclusive new lines that Groomers will be stocking this year, and we will also have the first copies of our brand new 2014 catalogue ready. So make sure you find some time in your busy Crufts schedule to drop in on the Groomers stand this year!
