Eastbourne dog owner Lauren and her pet pooch Poppy will appear in Channel 4’s new television show ‘Superstar Dogs: Countdown to Crufts’ next week.
The show, presented by John Barrowman, will feature 30 dogs and their owners completing a number of challenges, including a penalty shoot-out, swim and fetch and the ‘Dogstacle Course’. The top 12 entrants will make it through to the semi-finals before the eventual winner is crowned at Crufts later this year.
Lauren, who works at a veterinary practice, and Poppy, a Whippet Staff Cross, train together three times a week. They will appear in the episode airing on Tuesday, February 18.
