The organizers of the “Crafts” International Dog Show announced yesterday that the event that has been organized in England for 130 years, and is the largest of its kind in the world, will not be organized as scheduled in next July, due to the “Covid-19” pandemic.
The Kennel Club decided to cancel the competition it organizes annually, which was scheduled to take place between 15 and 18 July, due to concerns for the safety of thousands of participants.
The organizers of the event decided to cancel “Crafts”, as they excluded the possibility of the attendance of members of the jury and foreign participants, “in light of the emergence of a third wave of Corona virus in Europe.” And Chairman of the Board Tom Mather said: “We are very disappointed that we had to cancel (Crafts). For the first time since 1954, especially since this session was supposed to be the 130th anniversary of the founding of the competition.
After polling dog enthusiasts in recent weeks, the organizers found that 63% of them were uncomfortable with the idea of participating in a large event held in a closed space.
