Dog dancing or "Heelwork to Music" premiered at Crufts in 2005. It has since become a crowd favorite, existing somewhere between rhythmic gymnastics and Dancing With the Stars. Costumes are also involved.

Crufts also has "Flyball," a high adrenaline dog race, complete with crowd participation and a few unwavering rules, like each team having "at least one ABC (anything but a collie) dog in the team." Sorry collies!

They actually have a competition for crossbreeds, like Labradoodles and Puggles. A more informal competition than the purebreds, but see how happy this dog looks? Westminster, see?
