How can I enter my dog in Crufts?

Entries to the 2023 Crufts have already closed as the competition is underway.

The application process for 2024 will open once the 2023 tournament is over – so keep checking the Crufts website.

There is certain criteria your dog must reach to be entered into the legendary Crufts.

The most important thing is that your dog is Kennel Club registered – that is a record of your puppy being born.

Owners receive Registration Certificate with micro chip number and DNA tests for the dog.

If you wanted to go one step further you can get a Pedigree Certificate which has all the details of the breed, a pedigree name and five generations of your dog’s ancestors.

If you dog is not Kennel Club registered you can enter with an authority to compete number (ATC) but you need to apply for this by the December before Crufts begins.
