It’s amazing to think that two years have passed since wire-haired dachshund Maisie charmed her way to the Best in Show award on those tiny little legs.

Of course, it’s not just about the grand finale, with the world’s finest dogs and their loyal humans first set to compete across a range of disciplines, from the wonderful heelwork to music segment, through agility and its mesmerising weaves, the occasionally excruciating obedience championships, to the ever-thrilling flyball sprint relay.

And if it all gets a little too high-octane, you might want to grab the hankies for the Kennel Club Dog Hero Award, which recognises some of the most devoted dogs around. Also on the cards is the final of Scruffts, which is Crufts for crossbreeds.

Whether you’ll be tuning in with your own four-legged friend or simply pining for one, there’s no other show quite like it, and here's how to get a Crufts live stream from anywhere.
