Flat Coated Retriever Wins Crufts 2011

The 120th Crufts dog show climaxed with Sh Ch Vbos The Kentuckian, aka Jet, a Flatcoated Retriever being crowned Best in Show 2011. In a tough final, against a number of favourites, Jet and breeder Jim Irvine from South Queensferry, Edinburgh were chosen as the champions and presented with the trophy in a packed Birmingham NEC arena.

Approximately 138,000 people came to watch the 21,422 dogs compete over the last four days for the Best in Show title. Jet’s thrilled owner, Iain Ross said: “I am over the moon, I can’t believe it. It’s a lifetime achievement, it’s wonderful.

The Reserve Best in Show went to Jilly, a Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, owned by Gavin and Sara Robertson from Wallingford, Oxfordshire. The awarding of the Best in Show winner was preceded by the presentation of the Kennel Club’s Friends for Life award, which recognises the UK’s dog heroes. The award went to Joanne Day from Staffordshire with her Golden Retriever/Poodle cross, Kaiser, a ‘Canine Partners’ assistance dog.

Well done to all the winners!
