I will not be going, but will be looking into the possibility of a live feed. If that is possible, we will be having a Crufts Poodle party here!!! I would love to be part of the action, so can do it that way. Janett will know I will be there in spirit cheering them on. We do not for a moment expect he will win, but YES, winning what he did made me super proud, and just to get an invite is positively thrilling!
Oh, how exciting! I just got some Chris Christensen Thick N Thicker and that sounds like it would work. (Maybe the mousse or the bodifier spray?)
Thick N Thicker Texturizing Bodifier
The ultimate texturizing bodifier!
Chris Christensen Systems Thick N Thicker's aerosol delivery system gives you the ultimate control with a continous, even spray pattern, it delivers an ultra fine mist for even distribution with zero weight, cutting your grooming time in half. Immediately builds body, volume, and lift, texturizing from the inside and out to change the diameter of the hair. Gives volume and body from roots to ends.
Thick N Thicker Whipped Creme Mousse
Adds volume & shine
Thick N Thicker Whipped Creme Mousse (aerosol) adds incredible volume and shine while infusing nutrients that enrich the coat with vitamins and fatty acids. Fix a myriad of hair traumas, from providing instant cures for flyaways, to controlling frizz. Creates volume, lift, texture, shine and control with just about any coat type, length or texture.
Well I am off to Crufts in the UK with my girl, and am not allowed to use hairspray on her TK, should be fun, lots of back combing, but if any one has any other suggestions other than products to keep it all together, advice greatfully received
I have no advice on any products to use but will say practice at home at least 3 times with what you want to use before you go to Crufts. Have fun and enjoy yourself!
Rayah Quality Standards
Quality not Quantity
Hairspray is officially banned in my country and yet, even judges showing their dogs DO use it. I had my reservations, but now I just make my boy look good. If a judge disqualifies me, so be it. Never happened :P

You can use "crystals" some us Chris Christenson, I use Erica Salas but you do need a Boar Bristol brush or one that has Boar & synthtic combo. I guess the Boar Bristols activate the "crystals". You can look up Eric Salas on Youtube & watch his video's of "show dogs" using the "crystal" method of fullness.
Have a great time & enjoy- don't forget to have someone take photo's.
WOW!!! I just watched the video of Eric Salas with the Crystals!
As soon as anyone mentions Crufts I get really excited!
I live in the UK and Crufts 2012 is going to be my first year (not showing, just going for the action and the shopping.Eek)
I'm going with the Groomers I work for and I can't wait. We all have toy/utility breeds so we'll definitely be there on the Thursday, I'll keep an eye out for you!
