Nicci Hindson

Straight from winning the Freestyle Heelwork to Music category at Crufts for the second year in a row, we're excited to welcome Nicci Hindson and her dog Elsa to the Main Arena! Watch Nicci's Crufts performance and more at Hylands Park for the early May Bank Holiday.

Scentwork Demonstration

Did you know that Inside your dog's nose, there are about 300 million smell receptors, compared to a human's six million? Join Kassie Woods in the Main Arena as she displays the four areas and progression of scentwork. This is set to be a great display to give us all ideas of how to enrich our dogs' lives through their noses.

Gundog Demonstration

Come and see Kassie Woods in the Main Arena for a fascinating Gundog demonstration. Witness everything from the beginning of fun gundog games for all breeds and ages, including basic obedience such as stays, recall and heelwork, to the progression of these, such as retrieving.
