Pets As Therapy will be attending Crufts 2020, at the NEC Arena in Birmingham, from Thursday 5th March to Sunday 8th March.

The Pets As Therapy stand

Over the 4 days, we’ll be in Hall 4 on Stand 188 with a number of PAT staff, volunteers and PAT Dogs. If you’re coming to Crufts do come and say hello and we’ll be ready to answer any questions you may have about Pets As Therapy.

If you visit us at Crufts please share your photos with us on social media by tagging us and using the hashtag #PetsAsTherapy. We’re on:

PAT Show Dog of the Year

As well as our stand, we will be holding our final of the PAT Show Dog of the Year competition in Hall 5, Ring 35 on Sunday afternoon.

PAT Show Dog of the Year is a competition that can be entered by any of our Pets As Therapy registered visiting volunteers or charity supporters. Stakes class events take place at 5 dog shows across England, Wales and the Channel Islands throughout the year preceding Crufts and produce a total of 14 finalists.
