The greatest dog show on earth is not taking place at the NEC next week but on our farms, our streets and in our homes. It can be seen in the border collie’s exquisite skill at moving sheep, in how a German shepherd helps to police a riot and in the way a cavalier King Charles spaniel curls up in the crook of your arm and chases away loneliness. This is the true beauty of pedigree dogs. And it cannot be judged in a ring at Crufts.

Jemima Harrison is a producer at Passionate Productions, which made Pedigree Dogs Exposed.


Forget Crufts, forgot KC, they have let dogs down badly

Great job Jemima! :)

The notion that only the clubs should determine how things are run, what constitutes a health or breeding problem and and what needs to be addressed with 'their' breeds, and that the rest of the population -- that actually buys and owns and loves dogs-- should have no say, reminds me a LOT of what the whole banking sector has been telling us ... and look what happened with them. Turned out the public has ended up having to clean up their mess and take over their regulation to bring in some transparency, responsibility and proper management. Sure has echoes, doesn't it?
