OVER 2,500 TOP-RANKED DOGS FROM ALL U.S. STATES TO COMPETE AT THE 148TH ANNUAL WESTMINSTER KENNEL CLUB DOG SHOW MAY 11, 13 & 14 in NEW YORK CITY

Over 2,500 top-ranked dogs representing all 50 U.S. states will compete in the 148th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show presented by Purina Pro Plan on May 11, 13 & 14 in New York City. America’s most iconic dog show will return to the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, NY for the second consecutive year. Highlights for this year’s show include one newly AKCrecognized breed, the Lancashire Heeler, and the 90th Anniversary of Junior Showmanship.

The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show will welcome spectators once again to see 200 of the 201 American Kennel Club-recognized breeds represented at this year’s show. The largest Westminster entries by breed are Chihuahuas (49), Labrador Retrievers (48), Golden Retrievers (47), Vizslas (38), Dachshunds (37), French Bulldogs (36), and Australian Shepherds and Rhodesian Ridgebacks (32 each). A surprising entry, the newly eligible breed, the Lancashire Heeler (1), will also be part of the 16.5 hours of FOX Sports television coverage culminating with Best in Show on Tuesday, May 14, on FS1.

In total, Westminster Week will feature over 3,000 top-ranked dogs in four different competitions. The week kicks off with Canine Celebration Day on Saturday, May 11, 2024. Saturday’s festivities include the 11th Annual Masters Agility Championship, the 9th Annual Masters Obedience Championship, and a Breed Showcase, all presented by Purina Pro Plan, as well as Dock Diving at Westminster presented by Cosequin and demonstrations of freestyle obedience, herding, and scent work, as well as a Dog Show 101 presentation.

The breed competitions and Junior Showmanship Preliminaries will occur during the daytime on Monday (Hound, Toy, Non-Sporting, and Herding), and Tuesday (Sporting, Working, and Terrier), May 13 and 14. The Group Judging, Junior Showmanship Finals, and Best in Show will be held in the evenings. For the full schedule of events or to purchase tickets to the show, visit westminsterkennelclub.org.
