Crufts is the largest dog show in the world, watched by dog lovers of all ages and often enjoyed by the dogs themselves as they sit glued to the TV screen. The show is full of show dogs and much loved pets, all competing in a number of different categories, including agility, flyball and heelwork to music. There’s also the Police Dog Team Operational and Humanitarian Award that was presented on the fourth day of Crufts.
This year Rebecca Cross and her Scottish Terrier were awarded the highly sought after title of Best in Show at the Crufts award ceremony at the weekend. This is the first time since 1929 that a Scottish Terrier has won the title, and an excellent send off for Knopa, who is now going to enjoy her retirement.
It wasn’t the first time that Knopa has won a rosette at Crufts, she was crowned Best in Breed back in 2013 and again this year before taking the title of Best in Show. The Scottish Terrier was breed in the United States of America and competes under her show name, McVan’s to Russia With Love.
Other winners of the show include:
- Agility Final – Cambridgeshire Demon Dogs
- Freestyle Heelwork to Music – Harriot Skiffle King with Lucy Creek
