Best In Show Crufts 2022

Wellness CORE-fed Baxer the Flat-coated Retriever & Patrick Oware win Crufts 2022

Crufts 2022 saw over 16,000 dogs from around the world competing across 4 momentous days for just seven places in the Crufts 2022 Best in Show final. Patrick Oware the breeder, handler and co-owner of Baxer (Almanza Backseat Driver) Flat-coated Retriever take home the coveted title of Crufts 2022 Best in Show, accomplishing his childhood dream.

Not only is Baxer and Patrick’s success an historic and significant moment for them, it is also a great honour for Wellness CORE to be the food of choice for the 2019 and 2022 Best In Show winners at CRUFTS.

Baxer is fuelled by our Wellness CORE Active Life recipe. Patrick explained his choice in a testimonial about CORE: “I feed CORE because I CARE about my dog’s health and well-being. CORE Active Life supports his need for energy. The high-quality animal protein in the nutrition keeps him lean and strong, and the coat is healthy and shiny.”

As an Official Crufts Sponsor, Wellness CORE Managing Director, Wim Petermans, states: “Huge Congratulations to Baxer (Almanza Backseat Driver) Flat-coated Retriever and his caring owner Patrick Oware on their fantastic achievement winning Best in Show 2022 at Crufts! We are so proud that Patrick is part of our amazing Wellness CORE Breeder Family and are delighted to work with him. Our Wellness Pet team was also super happy to be out at Crufts again meeting with all our breeders, customers and consumers, and celebrating numerous successes in Breeds and Groups, along with the ultimate prize of Best in Show!”
