The Kennel Club of Jersey are delighted that over 40 Dogs have qualified for Crufts 2022, which is starting on Thursday and running until the final ‘Best In Show judging this Sunday evening. The enforced Covid break has meant it has been harder to qualify with fewer shows, but we are delighted that we have a bumper entry of dogs representing Jersey.
The standard is particularly high, with so many of our Members continuing the hard work through Covid, and they have returned to the show scene with quality dogs ready to grace the green carpets at Crufts.
Particularly pleasing is seeing the next generation of younger exhibitors who have joined our Club, all very excited about their first trip to Crufts to represent their Club and Country.
We also have several dogs going on the Discover Dogs stands representing their breed, with their owners voluntarily giving up time to explain all about their dogs to the visiting public.
