The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is back for the 144th year at Madison Square Garden on February 10 & 11, 2020! Be a part of this epic two-night event filled with hundreds of dogs from across the country competing in categories such as Best in Group and Best in Show.
Westminster is one of the remaining benched shows, which means that you can visit with handlers, breeders and the dogs on their ‘bench’. This allows you to speak to breeders and to learn the specific breed you might be interested in. All tickets include access to see the Best of Breed winners on their benches at Madison Square Garden before the show!
Additionally, a new breed will be introduced to the competition, the Azawakh, making its Westminster debut at The World’s Most Famous Arena. The Azawakh, is an ancient hunting hound that hails from the West African countries of Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger. As a member of the sighthound family, the breed’s lean and muscular structure paired with their keen vision makes them reliable hunters. The Azawakh’s sprinting ability have allowed them to chase gazelle across the Sahara Desert for more than a thousand years. The Azawakh excels as a companion and guard dog.
