Dubbed the “greatest dog event in the world”, Crufts returns for 2022 after the competition was unable to go ahead last year.

Organisers, The Kennel Club, regretfully decided to cancel last year’s event due to uncertainty over the Covid-19 pandemic leaving canine fans without one of the biggest dates in their diary.

Returning this week and running from March 10 to 13, the international dog show includes competitions such as dog agility, obedience, flyball, heelwork to music and the much-coveted Best in Show.

Here’s what to expect from each day.
