The Westminster Dog Show began yesterday (February 14th). Considered the ultimate in dog shows worldwide, the show is the world’s second longest running sporting event, behind only the Kentucky Derby.
The dogs are judged in categories such as movement, temperament, and physical traits like eye color, shape, coat, amongst many others. Dogs are placed in to seven different groups, which include: sporting, hound, working, terrier, non-sporting, and herding. Dogs who are deemed best in breed, as well as best in variety (a division of a breed, such as the size, color, or coat) are awarded the opportunity to compete for “Best in Show” which will be awarded tonight (February 15th). For more information, you can check out the American Kennel Club website.
