Resorts World to go dog friendly for Crufts

Resorts World Birmingham are opening their doors to four-legged guests during Crufts this week.

With the arrival of pooches on the NEC campus this week for the annual Crufts showdown, Resorts World Birmingham are opening their doors to four-legged guests during the event.

From Thursday 5 to Sunday 8 March, Resorts World will be dog-friendly, inviting both show dog owners and regular guests to bring their pooches along during their visit.

Crufts is the UK’s most popular canine event, attracting over 20,000 competitors alongside hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.

The event is centred on a championship conformation show for dogs, but also includes a large trade show of mainly dog-related goods and services and competitions in dog agility, obedience, flyball and heelwork to music.

The event takes place on the NEC campus this week, from Thursday through to Sunday.

Birmingham Dogs Home, the local Solihull charity working to rescue and rehome abandoned dogs, will also be present with some of their own furry friends.

They will host the chill-out area in Resorts World’s atrium to chat with guests, complete with dog beds, water bowls and toys for all dogs to enjoy a little R&R too. 

Guests can also dine with their pet when eating at Vietnamese Street Kitchen and the outside areas of Gourmet Burger Kitchen, Five Guys, Pizza Express & World Bar at Resorts World.

Entry with dogs to the outlet stores and other venues within the destination is at each venue’s discretion. Visible ‘dogs welcome’ signs will be displayed in the windows of the obliging venues.

Birmingham Dogs Home will be present between 12:00 – 4:00 pm on Thursday and Friday and 11:00 am – 4:00 pm on Saturday & Sunday.

Guests are also responsible for the clean up after their own pooch whilst in the building too.
