The 2016 Westminster Dog Show is here, and HollywoodLife.com wants to make sure you don’t miss a single moment. The event, held on Feb. 15 at Piers 92/94 in New York City, features 3,000 dogs vying for the top prize of Best in Show. Dog lovers will not want to miss this — WATCH right here!
Tonight, the Hound, Toy, Non-Sporting and Herding breeds will compete in a series of contests meant to test their athletic abilities, and they’ll be judged for appearance, too. Dogs will go up against their own breeds today, then the best breeds will go at it tomorrow during the finals, taking place at Madison Square Garden.
Fun fact — the first Westminster show happened in 1877, and since it happens every year, it’s the second-longest continuously held sporting event in the US after the Kentucky Derby (which was first held in 1875). Plus, for the first time ever, tonight, dogs will be tested on their obedience, and all types of breeds will be eligible to enter — not just purebred.
