I've been to the Crufts twice. It's an amazing show. I enjoyed looking at the different breeds and the animal welfare organization booths. I also found some marvelous doggie vendors. Last time I went, I found a woman who made dog coats to order. Of course, I had my furbaby's measurements with me, so I had her make my dog a coat.

I'd be interested in watching this, but I feel, like with all dog shows, torn. I enjoy them, but I also think about the inbreeding & puppy mills possibly involved.

inbreeding and/or puppy mills don't make for very high quality dogs. you can put your mind at ease knowing that these dogs came from reputable breeders who's priorities are to create healthy and happy puppies. plus, one aim of dog shows is to support healthy breeds, not those you'd find from puppy mills or as a product of inbreeding.

though i guess i didn't really consider all the dogs being shown. i'm more so assuming that if someones chasing a blue ribbon, they'd know better than to use an inbred dog or puppy mill survivor.

It is too bad that a few irresponsible breeders are causing all this trouble.

I guess this is the weight watcher program for dogs lol Skitters needs to be entered in it lol no not really. But Skitters loves jumps so maybe she would love doing this if she knew all the people there and all the dogs that is lol.

the dogs at shelters are excited, nervous, and not always well socialized or w/good obedience. dogs w/a home who are exercised and fulfilled and trained don't create the amount of chaos - but i'm sure it's louder than most people can handle beyond a few hours!

I never heard of this dog show. I can't even image haveing over 22,000 dogs compete. It must be quite a show.

I'd guess that whatever dog show one is at would be the "greatest" one.

would have loved to see this in it's entirety, but comfortably perched on my couch. i love watching dog shows. most people don't seem to share my enthusiasm, but anyone who's w/me has to pick a dog from each group and it's nail biting time to see who comes out on top!
