Has your pet pooch got what it takes to be crowned a canine champ?

Scruffts Just Dogs LiveWHILE some of the best-bred pooches will be proudly paraded around the judging ring at the East of England Championship Dog Show this summer – your crossbred can still be Top Dog!

A paws-itively great day out for the whole family, Just Dogs Live returns to the East of England Arena and Events Centre at the East of England Showground in Peterborough on July 7, 8 and 9.

Scruffts is the nation’s favourite crossbreed competition and is a great way to enjoy time with your dog and family, and the regional heat takes place right here at JDL!

Scruffts is run in support of the Kennel Club Charitable Trust, which has awarded over £9 million in grants to benefit dogs since it began in 1987.

This year saw 1,500 hopeful hounds and their owners vying for a place in the finals, with the six successful crossbreds appearing centre stage at Scruffts, part of the Crufts extravaganza in March.

So if you think your dog has got what it takes to dazzle the judges – then why not give it a go? Simply turn up at Just Dogs Live on Saturday 8 July and pay £2 to enter. The proceeds will go to Kennel Club charities.

The classes are:

  • Most Handsome Crossbreed Dog 6 months – 7 years
  • Prettiest Crossbreed Bitch 6 months – 7 years
  • Child’s Best Friend* 6 months – 12 years
  • Golden Oldie Crossbreed 8 years or over (at the organiser’s discretion)
  • Best Crossbreed Rescue
  • GCDS Crossbreed Class (for entrants that have a GCDS certificate at any level)

*(handled by a young person between 6 and 16 years of age)
