We are very lucky that our volunteers and dogs are often invited to represent the charity at events such as Crufts, All About Dogs and Dogfest. Tickets are very limited and we always try to get a diverse mix of dogs representing us. If you would like to attend Crufts or any other event, please read the information below and apply for tickets using the link at the bottom.
It is important to include your name, email address, mobile telephone number, details of your dogs and the dates and times you can attend.
It’s four days of non-stop fun, fundraising and awareness. By far the biggest event in our social calendar and the perfect opportunity to showcase the wonderful work we do as a charity and recruit more volunteers and their dogs.
We have a large presence at the show with our dogs highly visible on the Kennel Club’s Bark & Read stand as well as taking part in our Therapy Dog Parade in the Kennel Club Good Citizens ring.
Our volunteers happily fundraise on partnering trade stands and actively promote Therapy Dogs Nationwide over the 4 days.
We all have the “best dog in the world” and we all want to show off how proud we are to represent ‘TDN‘ but often people do not give full consideration as to how overwhelming Crufts can be.
It’s noisy, it’s tiring, it’s busy. It is often difficult to move due to the sheer amount of people, there are buggies and pushchairs and bags. People will approach your dog from all angles and never think to ask before stroking them.
Your dog may be ideally suited to visiting nursing homes or busy schools but please think twice about bringing them to Crufts. That said we usually have a small number of dog and handler tickets available each year. Please keep checking this page for more information.
If you are confident that your dog’s wellbeing would not be compromised by the Crufts environment and would like to apply to represent us, please read on.
