Crufts is always a great chance to meet up with old friends and make new ones, and this show is a mix of just that.

 

You can hear from Jackie Mavro, the Secretary of the Pennine and Scottish French Bulldog Association on why French Bulldogs are a great dog, but how popularity may not be such a great thing for the breed. We also meet some Frenchies who do agility.

 

Judith Broug and Garry Botterill celebrate Service Dogs UK's second birthday and first Crufts, and share with us the difference the charity is making to lives. You can hear a more in depth interview about the charity in Episode 169.
