11.55am update: Crufts history and origins

Crufts is named after founder Charles Cruft, who was a manager for a dog biscuit manufacturer.

The first show was named First Great Terrier Show and took place in 1886 with 57 classes and 600 entries.

The first show called Cruft’s Greatest Dog Show took place in 1891 and was the first which saw dogs of all breeds invited to participate and had a staggering 2,000 dogs.

Help your pet be the best pet he can be. Train your pet by setting him up to succeed. There’s a reason for everything your dog or cat does, and the reason rarely if ever involves being deliberately disobedient.

11.34am update: Good Citizen Show demonstrates how best to live with your dog

The Good Citizen Show is currently underway at Crufts, with demonstrations of how best to train your dog.

How to keep your dog safe in the car, how to walk with your dog along a road and how to interact with other dogs are all the subject of the display.

They discourage keeping the dog on your lap in a moving car, instead suggesting to keep your dog in a crate in the boot.
