Dog lovers can look forward to a record-breaking 14 hours of television coverage when Crufts returns to Channel 4 and More4 this week to celebrate the world’s largest dog show! This is two and a half hours more than the 2017 show which was then a record in itself.

With Clare Balding at the helm, Channel 4 and More4 will broadcast all the action from the show, leading up to the grand finale this Sunday when Best in Show will be crowned.

The World’s Biggest Dog Event

This year, Channel 4 will be broadcasting an extra one-hour programme from the show in the afternoon on all four days. Clare will host daily highlights of the world’s biggest dog event live from the NEC and will be joined by Alan Carr, who will be presenting the afternoon show with Clare, and Channel 4’s ‘Supervet’, Professor Noel Fitzpatrick.

The presenters will be supported by vet, health and welfare expert Nick Blayney, as well as dog reporters and breed experts, Jessica Holm and Frank Kane.

All of the Arena action from the show will also be shown every day live on the Crufts YouTube channel which can be found at

Caroline Kisko, Secretary of the Kennel Club, which runs Crufts, said: “We are delighted that Channel 4 and More4 will be offering viewers at home the opportunity to enjoy even more of this year’s Crufts. 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 and the many fascinating aspects of Crufts.”

Caroline added: “The enhanced TV coverage will not only bring exciting sports such as agility and flyball into people’s homes but will enable people 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.”
