At a Glance

Dachshunds, Pointers and Spaniels all agree — there’s nothing quite like the Westminster Kennel Club Annual Dog Show! Now in its 142nd year, the Westminster Dog Show brings the best of the breeds each season to Madison Square Garden. During the day, see who takes the ribbon for your favorite breed, and enjoy opportunities to meet people behind the scenes who train the champions. Then in the evenings, witness group judging events and the “Best in Show” competition. You’ll also enjoy free time and access to all of the associated show events.
