Crufts past winners in pictures: which dogs won Best in Show in previous years at the Birmingham NEC dog show?

Over the course of three days, thousands of dogs will compete across a variety of disciplines and categories - including the highly coveted Best in Show prize

Dogs of all shapes and sizes have returned to Crufts following last year’s cancellation due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Over 20,000 dogs have entered the competition this year, with 1,843 competitors arriving from overseas - however, only one can win the Best in Show award.
