Has Your Dog Got The Crufts Factor?

Hot on the heels of the Golden Collar awards the Kennel Club is searching for the next generation of canine stars. Dogs with talent are being sought for the first ever Crufts Factor, to take place at the world’s greatest dog show this March.

Similar to Britain’s Got Talent, but with dogs, Crufts Factor is open to dogs with a talent that is fun for both the dog and the public. Pippa Langhorne and her dog Buddy, who won the hearts of the nation in last year’s Britain’s Got Talent will be opening the competition with an operatic duet in the NEC Arena at Crufts in Birmingham on Saturday 10th March.

People who think their dog has what it takes are asked to post their videos on YouTube and send their links into the Kennel Club. People are encouraged to share their videos, as only those with the highest rating will go on to be shortlisted. The four shortlisted videos that best meet the judging criteria will then go on to compete in front of a judging panel, in the final in the Main Arena at Crufts.

The Kennel Club often hears about dogs that sing along to music, play keyboard or even skateboard and so decided it was time to recognise these special talents.

 

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Communications Director said, “Crufts celebrates dogs through a number of competitions including Friends for Life, Heelwork to Music and Agility. This year we decided to add this new fun dog talent show where dogs can show off their special skills. Crufts is all about celebrating dogs and what better way to do that than by showcasing some of their unique gifts in a fun way. Dogs love to be the centre of attention and they certainly will be in this competition.”

The talent should be both safe and enjoyable for your dog, and finalists will need to be able to come to Crufts on 10th March at the NEC in Birmingham. For further information, please visit www.crufts.org.uk/cruftsfactor.
