Why we’re sponsoring Crufts?
We’re thrilled to be partnering with Crufts across their 2022 events, championships and displays. As the biggest and arguably the best dog event in the world, Crufts celebrates everything canine. What’s more, it’s a great way to keep the nation’s dogs active for life – which is what we’re all about!
YuMOVE and Crufts: Our 15-year history
Here at YuMOVE, we’ve helped hundreds of canine athletes and show dogs to excel by providing them with clinically proven* products that optimise performance and coat health. Keep an eye out for us in Hall 3A, Stand 3-66, where we’ll be showing off our re-branded packaging (coming soon!) and giving away heaps of exciting prizes and freebies.
During our 15 years of joint expertise, we’ve made supporting agility and show dogs one of our top priorities. We attended our first ever agility event in 2007 – the East of England Champ Show. And our first ever product (now called YuMEGA Show Dog) was designed specifically to enhance the coat and eye health of show dogs.
What’s more, we first attended Crufts in 2008 and since then we’ve never missed an opportunity to support your champions and talk everything YuMOVE. This year is no different. For the first time, we’re the Official Crufts Sponsor for 2022 – and we’re very excited!
How are we supportinfg Crufts competitors?
We’ll be there in person to attend each event and give first-hand support and advice to every agility and show competitor. Plus, we’ll be promoting our fresh new product... more info coming soon!
Crufts competitors: powered by YuMOVE
Over the years, we’re proud to say that many Crufts competitors and winners (including Best in Show, Best in Group and Agility) have all been powered by YuMOVE. Let’s take a closer look at just some of Crufts’ stand-out winners who also happen to be our customers:1. Yogi, Hungarian Vizsla, Best in Show winner 2010
Seven-year-old Yogi (Ch Hungargunn Bear It’n Mind) beat off the competition to become winner in 2010 – with help from YuMEGA Show Dog to enhance his glossy and healthy coat.
“We have trusted YuMEGA for the past couple of years to help us keep our dogs, including Yogi, in the best condition – they are the picture of health.” – John Thirlwell, Yogi’s handler

Other notable competitors1. Sully, Border Collie, Chinese Crested Powderpuff, and Poodle cross, Small Breed Agility winner 2018 and 2019
Although Sully wasn’t taking any YuMOVE product at the time, Ashleigh Butler – Sully’s handler and former Britain’s Got Talent winner – has now become a proud advocate and ambassador for the YuMOVE brand.
“I want the absolute best for my dogs. I'm a strong believer in my dogs being able to continue training for as long as possible, and anything that I can give them to help them do that, I want to be using that. YuMOVE is absolutely the best for them.” – Ashleigh Butler, YuMOVE Ambassador

Former Dragon (on BBC’s Dragon’s Den) and Kennel Club Assured Breeder, Jenny Campbell, has recently become a YuMOVE ambassador. Her Flat-coated Retriever, Tara, gained her stud book in 2018, meaning she’s qualified for Crufts for life. All three of her dogs have won many classes over the years. And Tara has two Reserve Challenge Certificates from the Kennel Club. Read on to find out why she’s so passionate about what we do at YuMOVE:
“I always believe in recommendations. I was recommended YuMOVE over 10 years ago, used it, and had discernible results. That gave me confidence in the brand and, since then, I've moved on to use all the products. It’s a brand I trust and respect.” – Jenny Campbell, YuMOVE Ambassador
The benefits of YuMEGA Show Dog and YuMOVE Joint
YuMEGA Show Dog
YuMEGA Show Dog helps give your dog the perfect show coat. It’s packed with a unique blend of the finest Omega-3 and Omega-6 oils combined with Lutin, Lecithin and natural Vitamin E to support skin, coat and eye health in show dogs.
How YuMOVE joint products help agility dogs
At YuMOVE, we understand the type of high-level activities agility dogs perform – like twisting, jumping and running at high speeds. We also know that these movements place additional strain on their joints. That’s where our joint products come in. They’re enriched with a whole host of incredible ingredients to support overall joint health, so your agility dog can continue to do what they love for as long as possible. Let’s take a closer look:
- ActivEase® Green Lipped Mussel. Provides a concentrated source of Omega-3 fatty acids to support your dog’s own anti-inflammatory action and help soothe stiff joints after exercise.
- Glucosamine, N-Acetyl-D Glucosamine and Chondroitin. These are all found naturally within Green Lipped Mussel, and they help replenish joint tissues in active dogs.
- Manganese supports collagen formation in the cartilage, tendons and ligaments, and boosts joint strength.
- Antioxidants and Vitamins C & E help to neutralise free radicals produced during intense exercise.
- Our unique form of Hyaluronic Acid has been proven to reach your pet’s joints in just two hours.** It helps lubricate and cushion the joints – particularly important in active dogs.
Whether used preventatively in young dogs just starting out in agility, or reactively in older and more experienced agility dogs who may require additional support, we’ve got you covered.
