What's On

Come and meet over 200 different dog breeds, explore our range of doggy shops and enjoy a range of activities, world-class displays and competitions at London's biggest and best doggy day out!

NOTE: Unfortunately no dogs, other than those that have been invited by the Kennel Club and Assistance Dogs, are permitted into the show.



Scruffts is the nation’s favourite crossbreed competition and is a great way to enjoy time with your dog and family. A crossbreed is a dog of mixed blood, whose parents are of two different breeds, or a mixture of several breeds.

Throughout the year, heats of the popular Scruffts contest, which is exclusively supported by pet food makers James Wellbeloved, take place at events around the country in search of crossbreeds with that extra special something.
