 Crufts is an annual dog show which takes place over four days. It is hosted by the Kennel Club and is currently held in Birmingham. The first Crufts show was held in London in 1891.

At Crufts, dogs that have qualified in regional rounds compete in a hierarchical fashion: firstly, they compete against members of their own breed to determine Best of Breed; then they compete against winners of other breed sections to determine Best of Group (groups being categories such as hounds, terriers etc.); finally, they compete against other group winners for the top two accolades: Best in Show and Reserve Best in Show.
