If you’re one of those people who like to travel with your pets or are just an animal lover in general, especially dogs, you may find the annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City to be to your liking.
The event will be taking place at the world-famous and historic Madison Square Garden arena on Feb. 14th and 15th from 8.30 am to 11 pm each day.
The event is recognized as the top annual dog show in America as it attracts about 2500 canine entries that go through hours of judging.
By the time the final night arrives there are only seven dogs left in the competition and millions of people tune in on TV to see which one will be honored with the prestigious Best in Show award.
Along with the competition, you’ll also be able to find dozens of dog-related things to view and purchase at the show. The show is so popular that the 2011 version of it will be the 135th edition.
The only continuously-held sporting event in America that has a longer history than the dog show is the Kentucky Derby horse race, which started one year earlier.
