Video: Upwell’s Sue Smith wins Kennel Club Junior Warrant final at Crufts

They say every dog has its day and that is what thousands of entries were hoping for as they gathered at the world's largest dog show – Crufts.

Birmingham's NEC was the venue as 26,000 healthy, happy dogs gathered with a view of winning the prestigious Best in Show award.

The route to Sunday's showpiece isn't easy, with the dogs and owners having to fight off competition to win Best of Breed and then Best in Group to become one of the seven finalists.

Last year's winner was Jet, a Flat Coated Retriever, from the Gundog category, and this year the hound, pastoral, terrier, toy, utility and working groups will be hoping their time has come.

But it isn't all about the veterans in the West Midlands, with the Young Kennel Club in full flow, showcasing the talents of six to 24-year-olds, readying them for the main ring in the future as well.

And Norfolk had a weekend winner as Sue Smith, 59 from Upwell, won the Kennel Club Junior Warrant final with Dan, a two-year-old Samoyed.
