The world’s most famous dog show returns to screens for 2023, with coverage across Channel 4 and More4.
The coverage will be led by Clare Balding, who will be joined by returning co-presenters Radzi Chinyanganya and Sophie Morgan, both self-proclaimed dog-lover and consider them a huge part of their lives and families.
Organised and hosted by The Kennel Club, the largest organisation in the UK devoted to dog health, welfare and training, it is the largest show of its kind in the world and has been broadcast by Channel 4 and produced by Sunset+Vine since 2010.
This year’s coverage is set to include classic favourites such as live Flyball, Agility, Heelwork to Music and of course, the infamous Best in Show title for which different breeds can compete. Viewers will also be able to enjoy expert canine advice and tips, hear fascinating doggy stories, discover new breeds, and get involved from home across all of Channel 4’s social channels.
The first group to be judged this year, with the winner going through to Sunday's prestigious Best in Show final, will be the Gundogs. Last year this category was won by Almanza Backseat Driver - a flat-coated retriever - who went on to be named Best in Show.
Athleticism and speed are on display in the Agility finals for intermediate and large dogs in the main arena, with commentary from Jim Rosenthal and Graham Partridge. Plus, the team discuss the best ways of dealing with dogs' behavioural issues.
Crufts returns this March on Channel 4.
