Scruffts 2018
FAMILY CROSBREED DOG OF THE YEAR

The Scruffts Family Crossbreed Dog of the Year competition, which is exclusively supported by pet food makers James Wellbeloved, is the nation’s favourite crossbreed competition. The 2017 heats attracted over 1,300 dogs, all hoping to be recognised as the crossbreed with that extra special something. The heats also raised nearly £4,000 for the Kennel Club Charitable Trust and each event’s chosen charity.

Scruffts 2018 winner - Jack
Category: Good citizen dog scheme

Jack, a Shih Tzu/Maltese cross came into 16 year-old Young Kennel Club (YKC) member Josie Baldwin’s life five years ago. Josie, who has wanted a dog for many years, was finally allowed one so long as she trained him properly. After choosing Jack, Josie began training him at the Happy Hound Puppy and Dog Training club in Kent. Shortly after attending puppy classes she began taking him to Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme (GCDS) classes, where she achieved her bronze, silver and gold awards. She also competes in competitive obedience and agility with Jack.
