Crufts celebrates its 125th anniversary

To mark the 125th anniversary of the world's greatest dog show, members of the Kennel Club's Good Citizen Dog Training Scheme were invited to help launch Crufts 2016 by taking part in a historic aerial photograph of dogs and owners in the shape of the number 125.

On Tuesday 8th March, dogs and their owners gave up their time to travel from different parts of the country to participate in the photo shoot at the NEC in Birmingham, where Crufts takes place every year.

The canine models and their human companions were invited to attend after achieving a Bronze, Silver or Gold award as part of their Good Citizen Dog Scheme training at their local club.

The Kennel Club wishes to thank every well behaved dog and owner for helping to mark a very special occasion. The photocall was a memorable morning and the Kennel Club couldn't have done it without the GCDS volunteers.
