Hi all,

Does anyone know how to enter a dog into Scruffs?
Iím struggling to find out how to register my dog to the competitions.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Amanda, the Scruffts heats are held at various events during the year so you may need to contact the specific event organiser of the event you plan to attend. Not sure if this helps but it appears to be a list of 2018 Scrufts heats at the various events

The heat dates are posted on the Internet a little later in the year. Just turn up on the day and register your dog. Easy, enjoy the experience. Oscar and I did.

Judge Rinder made a mistake announcing the Winner on Scruffts. He said that the winning breed was a Cavalier cross instead of the shih tzu cross

What happened? Was the winner supposed to be the Cavalier cross, that's what Judge Rinder announced?

I am rooting for Percy the Pointer Cross originally from Cyprus to win in 2019. The charity he comes from is the most pro active animal charity JIhave known and they find new homes for so many unfortunate dogs., my own included. It would be a marvellous accolade not only for Percy but for the volunteers of this charity who work tirelessly and endlessly to find forever homes for so many dogs so that they may gave a second chance in life. I cannot praise them enough.

Hi, I'm planning on going but do I need to buy tickets for the actual day apart from registering on the day. Thanks in advance
