The dogs love it – and atmosphere reaches fever pitch as 16 teams battle against each other for a place in the final.
Qualifiers are held throughout the year, and at Crufts the competition starts at the quarter-final stage. The teams are composed of four dogs and handlers; one of the team members must be an ABC dog – anything but a Border Collie (or Working Sheepdog).
This year, the competition is judged by Rachel Childs.
