For dog owners who appreciate purebreds, Crufts is worthy of the title ‘biggest and best celebration of dogs.’ 2019 marks the 128th anniversary of the prestigious dog show, and if you’re travelling with your beloved canine, Stratos Jets will book a pet-friendly plane charter for you and your four-legged friends. Many people don’t realize it, but Crufts is so much more than a championship conformation show for dogs. The four-day event also features a large trade show of dog-related goods and services, as well as competitions in:
- Dog agility
- Heelwork to music
However, the main competition still remains the Best in Show award, which is hotly contested by dogs and their owners. Organized and hosted by The Kennel Club every year at the National Events Centre (NEC) in Birmingham, England, it’s the largest show of its kind in the world. Compared to the Westminster Kennel Dog Show, which attracts 3,200 entries, Crufts drew a staggering 22,000 dogs last year. Need further proof that this is a big deal? Check out these stats:
- More than 3,400 dogs from 45 overseas countries participated (many of them arriving on a plane charter)
- The four-day event attracted nearly 160,000 visitors in 2017
- 200 different breeds of dog
- Cumulative peak television audiences reach 6.4 million viewers
- Crufts attracted 646 members of the press registered from 34 countries
For those who take canine pedigree seriously, this is a must-attend event. Whether you’re travelling as a participant or spectator, Stratos Jets can arrange a plane charter that’ll get you across the Atlantic quickly and comfortably.
