What is Scruffts?

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. Whilst Scruffts is a fun competition, opportunities are taken to stress the important messages relating to responsible dog ownership.

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.
