Breed Judging

  • Judging of Hound, Toy, Non-Sporting and Herding breeds and Junior Showmanship Preliminaries 

    • 8:00am – 4:30pm

The dogs entered at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show each compete within their own breed to be chosen as Best of their Breed/Variety. There are 212 AKC-recognized breeds and varieties.

Junior Showmanship is a competition assessing the handling skills of children 9-18 years of age independent of the traits of the dog. The competition promotes proper training and care to prepare future generations for responsible dog ownership, sportsmanship, and future success in the sport.

Once selected as Best of Breed/Variety, dogs advance to compete within their AKC-recognized Group: Hound, Toy, Non-Sporting, Herding, Sporting, Working, and Terrier.
