Which day for Crufts?

So excited - Crufts novice here and really looking forward to it.

I read on the website that Saturday is busy - but I don't want to be in the arena for the best of show business on the Sunday. Does other stuff continue on the Sunday while that is going on?

Which day would you go:?

Sunday will be the busiest day, but weekends in general will be busy.

There are things going on all day, every day.

There should be at least some representatives of each breed present in Discover Dogs each day, but the general showing is different groups (breed types) on different days, so if there is a particular breed you wanted to see more of, choose your day based on that.

Today was Hounds and Terriers
Friday is Utility and Toy breeds
Saturday is Gundogs
Sunday is Working and Pastoral breeds.

Thanks Whitney, that's really useful.

I'd recommend Saturday over Sunday but I would go early, do your shopping in the morning and then head to the arena to grab a seat for the afternoon and eat your picnic there. You'll be worn out by then and miss the worst of the crowds.

Probably the wrong place to post but I was very pleased to see a Lakeland won the Terrier group to go through to Sunday's Final.
I hadn't realised it is considered an emdangered breed sad
We had a Lakeland when I was growing up.

Enjoy whichever day you go, OP.
