We had a fantastic time at Crufts and we want to pass on some information and tips to others wanting to go there for the first time.   Have a game plan  Crufts is absolutely massive. There were 5 halls open for this year’s event, plus the main arena. You can get information about what’s on and where from the Crufts website (but there are opportunities to buy a show guide from vendors outside each hall). Make sure you get one and take time at the beginning to have a plan of the things you really want to see. Get…

Today is “Love Your Pet Day” and we celebrated by baking some special treats for the pups!!! It’s not often that the desire to bake hits me……it’s been a long time…..a very long time…..
