Ashleigh Butler - Heelwork to Music star

Ashleigh Butler has been a Young Kennel Club member for over 13 years, and began by training her dogs in YKC training events and competitions. 

After competing in the Young Kennel Club Heelwork to Music finals at crufts for a number of years, Ashleigh and her crossbreed dog, Pudsey, entered and won TV show, Britain's got Talent in 2012 catapulting them into overnight fame.

Despite becoming movie stars, Ashleigh & Pudsey still compete at Crufts every year, in various activities, and Ashleigh is still a dedicated Young Kennel Club member.

"Crufts is amazing, there's no feeling like it; it's incomparable to anything else we've done. The crowds are fantastic - this is definitely our favourite competition; it's the highlight of the calendar year."
