Two Warwickshire pooches have been recognised with awards at one of the world’s most prestigious dog shows. Jakob, from Warwick and Frankie, from Kenilworth, both scooped Best of Breed at Crufts 2023 this weekend.

Dogs of every size, shape, colour and breed took centre stage in Birmingham, along with thousands of dog lovers who came in to watch the show.

Organised by The Kennel Club, Crufts The World’s Greatest Dog Show takes place over four days until Sunday, March 12. Dogs wowed the crowds with incredible displays of agility and heelwork, along with hundreds of stalls for visitors to brows.

There were several categories and prizes awarded to the dogs who stood out from the masses. Two local dog owners and their pooches were crowned this year’s champions.
