Crufts blamed the incident on animal rights group PETA and accused the man of putting the competitors' safety at risk.

Dog owner Yvette Short, 52, from Bonnyrigg in Midlothian, was captured live on TV carrying the two-and-a-half-year-old dog to safety as guards sought to tackle the activists.

Crufts and the NEC have said they will urgently review security measures.

In a post on its blog page, PETA wrote that the protest was organised because: "Crufts glorifies canine eugenics, rewarding breeders for producing dogs with "ideal" physical traits with little or no regard for their welfare".

"Our main priority at the moment is the wellbeing of the dogs that were in the ring, who are looked after by their owners and show officials".
