Crufts entries released

The Kennel Club have released the entry figures for Crufts 2019. Across the disciplines a total of 20,565 dogs are entered, just a few hundred down on last year. In all honesty the Glen of Imaal Terrier entry at just 20 (8 dogs and 12 bitches) is not good but what was expected? With the cost of entries, the stress of the show and getting there for a 9.00am start combining with a judge that hasn’t shown an awful lot of affinity for the breed previously it isn’t too big a surprise.
