"It’s always a pleasure to be involved in Crufts, which holds a dear place in the hearts of that nation’s dog lovers,” Clare Balding said. "The quintessentially British event is a four-day celebration of everything we love about dogs.
"I enjoy the variety of the programmes, with all of the action from the various competitions from agility to showing, and the interviews and features with interesting and passionate people about the issues that are important to dog lovers.”
C4’s commissioning editor Michael Cole said: "Crufts is the largest dog show in the world and we are excited to see its return this March. We have a brand new set this year and our programmes will showcase the exciting displays and competitions, which celebrate Britain’s love affair with its favourite pet.
"Coverage will span across C4 and More4 throughout the four day event.”
Kennel Club secretary Caroline Kisko said: "Crufts holds such a special place in dog lovers’ hearts because it celebrates everything that we most love about dogs, and C4 and More4 reflect the full diversity of the event.
"The programmes not only show exciting sports such as agility and flyball, and enable people to marvel at the huge range of wonderful breeds in this country through the showing aspect of Crufts, but it also covers topics of importance to dog owners about choosing, caring for and enjoying life with dogs.”
