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.
