Vanessa McAlpine, Crufts Show Manager, said: “We are delighted that Channel 4 and More4 will be offering viewers at home the opportunity to enjoy this year’s Crufts, with more coverage than ever. The event holds such a special place in dog lovers’ hearts because it celebrates everything that we love most about dogs, and the programmes will reflect on the benefits dogs bring to our lives, as many families have discovered during the pandemic, as well as the many fascinating aspects of Crufts.

“The TV coverage will not only bring exciting sports such as agility and flyball into people’s homes, but will enable them to see the diverse range of wonderful dog breeds, including some of the more unusual breeds that are not often seen in the streets and parks across the country, through the dog show aspect of Crufts. It will also cover topics about choosing, caring for and enjoying life with dogs, as well as different issues affecting dog owners in the UK.”

All of Channel 4 and More4’s coverage of Crufts will be produced by Sunset + Vine.
