When will Best in Show be announced?

The Best in Show and Presentation is scheduled to take place from 8.30pm today.

The winners of Best in Breed compete against others in their group, Toys, Gundogs, Utility, Hounds, Working, Pastoral, and Terriers for the Best in Group award. 

Those seven winners from each group then go head to head for Best in Show and Reserve Best in Show. 

The winner of Best in Show receives a replica of the solid silver Keddall Memorial Trophy and a small cash prize of £100.

Last year’s Best in Show winner was Tease the Whippet from Edinburgh. 

The first show called Cruft’s Greatest Dog Show took place in 1891 and was the first which saw dogs of all breeds invited to participate and had a staggering 2,000 dogs. 

Today this has grown to the more than 27,000 dogs attending in 2019.
