There’s so much to see and do, there’s lots to look out for with some fantastic shopping competitions and fun activities available on many of the stands.

We are the only indoor dog show in the UK where you can bring your own dog, so shampoo that pooch and join in. You will need to buy tickets in advance to attend with a dog but you can enter the fun competitions on the day.

Our very own scruffs, family crossbreed dog of the year, is the nation’s favourite crossbreed competition and is a great way to enjoy time with your dog and family. A crossbreed is a dog of mixed blood, whose parents are of two different breeds, or a mixture of several breeds.

Whilst Scruffts is a fun competition, opportunities are taken to stress the important messages relating to responsible dog ownership. Scruffts entries are taken on the day.
