Could anybody explain me as clearly, as it's posible - how the dog form Lithuania could get to CRUFTS, please?
Not every dog can get into CRUFTS - am I right, or not?
What does it mean "Nominated Overseas Qualifying Shows in 2006 for Crufts 2007"? Does it mean, that the only "W" winners of Qualifying shows can get the Cruft's? Is it enought to get only one "W" from this list? What about Int.CH - can they get the CRUFTS, or they also must pass these qualifying dog show?
There are some ways how to get your dog on Crufts.
1. If you`ve visited one of below mentioned shows with getting Best female/ Best male, Best Junior female/ Best Junior male your dog receives qualification for Crufts. For year 2007 the dog shows are:

The winner of Best female/ Best male, Best Junior female/ Best Junior male in 2005 at the one of the shows could choose when to participate: in 2006 or 2007.
2. I remember that somewhere at www.crufts.org.uk I`ve read that EVERY International Champion of FCI can participate at Crufts too.
3. Also at www.crufts.org.uk was written that some FCI members in Europe have the signed contract with the EKC which testifies that National Champion of the Country (which has this contract) can go to crufts without Qualification.
This year at Crufts will take part 4 and maybe even more dogs from Latvia, but all of them got the Oversease qualification. Better will be if you will send the message to the Crufts Event Organization: www.crufts.org.uk go to "Contact Us" and roll down and there you can write them a message! They will reply you in about a week (maybe sooner) on your e-mail!
*Adi*, and what about travel with a dog to England?... How to get there? Do they admit foreign dogs to Craft's?... What about quarantine period, they ask for every incoming dog/cat?
Yes, there`s a quarantine... But in every country there are totally different rules... You have to call to Lithuanian Veterinary department! It will be much better! www.pvd.gov.lv/ - Latvian Veterinary department
