  • Description

    CRUFT'S 1964 -- THE WORLD'S BIGGEST DOG SHOW -- OPENED IN LONDON TODAY (FRIDAY). THE SHOW LASTS TWO DAYS SINCE THERE ARE JUST TOO MANY DOGS TO BE JUDGED IN ONE DAY.

    THERE ARE A RECORD NUMBER OF ENTRIES IN THIS YEAR'S SHOW WITH 8,277 DOGS COMPETING. MOST OF THE DOGS HAVE A LINE OF RELATIONS BEFORE THEM. A WIN AT CRUFT'S CAN MULTIPLY A DOG'S VALUE 20 TIMES. FOLLOWING THE WIN COME STUD FEES AND THE DOG'S OFFSPRING FETCH HIGHER PRICES. DOG BREEDING IN BRITAIN HAS BECOME QUITE AN INDUSTRY IN RECENT YEARS, AND LAST YEAR DOGS BROUGHT IN OVER GBP500,000 IN EXPORTS.

    FILMED HERE ARE A SAMPLE OF TODAY'S DOGS. TOMORROW THE SPORTING DOGS ARE JUDGED AND THE OBEDIENCE TRIALS.
