(CNN)Crufts is the world's biggest dog show, which this year attracted around 165,000 visitors to an arena in Birmingham, England, on March 5-8.

With more than 20,000 canine competitors taking part each year in four days of events, dogs large and small have a chance at finding glory in showing, agility and obedience contests.
The competition has been running since 1891 and is among the most famous international shows of its kind.
    Here are some of the best photos from Crufts 2019.
