Dogs with talent are being sought for the first ever Crufts Factor, to take place at the world’s greatest dog show in March. Imagine Britain’s Got Talent, but with dogs…
The Kennel Club is searching for the next generation of canine stars. Dogs with talent are being sought for the first ever Crufts Factor, to take place at the world’s greatest dog show this March.
The Kennel Club often hears about dogs that sing along to music, play keyboard or even skateboard and so decided it was time to recognise these special talents. Similar to Britain’s Got Talent, but with dogs, The Crufts Factor is open to dogs with a talent that is fun for both the dog and the public.
People who think their dog has what it takes are asked to post their videos on YouTube and send their links into the Kennel Club. People are encouraged to share their videos, as only those with the highest rating will go on to be shortlisted. The four shortlisted videos that best meet the judging criteria will then go on to compete in front of a judging panel, in the final in the main arena at Crufts.
The competition will open with an operatic duet from Pippa Langhorne and her dog Buddy (pictured), who won the hearts of the nation in 2011’s Britain’s Got Talent.
The talent should be both safe and enjoyable for your dog, and finalists will need to be able to come to Crufts at the NEC Arena in Birmingham on March 10, 2012.
