Crufts is an exhibition dog show, where dogs of all breeds and job descriptions are groomed and pampered before either performing a task of some sort in front of an audience, or presented in front of a panel of judges. Crufts is the largest dog show in the world, as recognised by the Guinness Book of Records and thousands of spectators will flock to the Birmingham NEC for a day out, or they will stay in the area and attend all of the 4 days of doggy slip ups and embarrassed owners.
