Crufts 2 7 years 1 week ago #31608

My wife and i are hoping to visit Crufts this year on hound day just to see our favourite dh:) We've never been before and I'm worried that we'll get there only to find that we can't get as close as we'd like to the hounds. Is there anything we need to do to ensure that we can wander around and talk to the owners and be closer to this special breed?

Hi, I'm usually busy either gassing or with the dogs on hound day so I don't have any ringside pictures at crufts, however this collie is being exhibited in the ring on pastoral day & you can see how close the people are to the edge of the ring. Get a hound catalogue to provide you with the names of the hounds, the breeders, sires + dams, also their owners. Do come say hello & make your self known

Round the dogs and rings areas its normaly not so bad, you may not get a seat
so if you get chance grab one or two, the areas were its mostly packed is the shops, agility and other places like that.

I will say one thing, as well as the hound catalogue Wigster mentions, make sure you get a map of were everything is - it will show you which rings are were, last year i ended up having to buy one
as i got totaly lost :blush: lol, it gets verry confusing which direction each ring is and you can end up walking round in circles.

With the benching it’s like long corridors with dogs either side, which you can walk down. Our dogs are usually on the floor as the benches are to small :laugh:
We will be there so come and say hi.
BTW the map is a good idea.

I will be there Neil with Elsie Grey, so please come and say hello :) We usually camp out beside the benches at the end some where, as Elsie Grey finds it difficult to get comfy on the bench! You will probably spot us as Elsie Grey is usually trying to break in to someones picnic box :whistle:
I think you will have a great day, lots to see and lots of things to buy :ohmy:

I went for the first time last year and was surprised you can just amble along the waiting areas, i actually missed the deerhound classes, but had a lovely time chatting to hound owners and snuggling lots of ears while people were waiting :laugh:

Hoping to be a bit more organised and get there earlier this year, we didnt get a map last year and kept wandering back and forth all day, the place is HUGE so i definatley will get a map next time to save my legs ;)

I will be benched near the Wigster, at the end of the deerhounds can't miss me I have two Deerhounds and a Whippet together, although the Deerhounds are in hall 5, the Whippets are in hall 4 which is a pain. Please come and have a chat.

Didnt know about that - still have my map from last year i think,
think the halls are the same as last year, so will probably dig that out.

Hopefully nothing will happen and i will be there again on the day,
will remember this time - not to forget the SD card for the camera
forgot it last year, no point having a camera without a card lol

And I will also be there with Dirk - and since I have never (knowingly!) met any of you, how will I recognise you? Maybe everyone in this group should wear a banana or something? :laugh: Then again, maybe not!!!!!!!!!!!

We will all be wearing ring numbers so all you will have to do is match us up with the crufts catalogue. Just in case there are a lot of old grey men out there:lol:
