About Westminster Kennel Club:
In 1877, New York was well on its way to becoming the world's greatest city. This was the year that a group of sporting gentlemen decided that this would be a good time to hold a dog show in Manhattan. It didn't take long before the Westminster Kennel Club, following the lead of its home town, would be on its way to becoming the world's greatest dog show and today is the second-longest continuously-held sporting event in this country, behind only the Kentucky Derby. In 2014, the club has added an agility trial to be held with the dog show this year, for which dogs of all breeds and mixed breeds (All American dogs) are eligible.
