The Westchester County venue will host the 146th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. The event will include thousands of dogs and their handlers on 67 acres.

The Westminster Kennel Club canine contest has been rescheduled after the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2022 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is here. Dog lovers will have the chance to enjoy the moment and ask the timeless “Who’s the best boy?” 

The Westminster Dog Show now has 211 eligible breeds. Additionally, the American Kennel Club officially recognizes two new breeds. The Toy Group will now contain the small Russian Toy.

PEOPLE interviewed Gail Miller Bisher (director of communications at Westminster Kennel Club and Fox Sports analyst for dog competition) to learn what animal lovers can expect from this year’s event.

Two new breeds were added to the list. This may surprise dog lovers. Both breeds are eligible to participate in the famous event. The Toy Group will also include the Russian Toy.

Miller Bisher said that there are 211 types of dogs that are eligible for entry to Westminster. Many of these breeds have been around for centuries, and some are even displayed at Westminster since 1877. They are also very rare because some of them are highly vulnerable.

If people are interested in adopting a dog, they should be able to identify the right breed. They are often not well-known.

The “American Fox Hound” is one of the hidden gems at the 2022 Westminster Dog Show. They were owned by George Washington and are still displayed at Westminster today.

Many people are familiar with Westminster Dog Show’s confirmation events, where one dog is named Best In Show. This award recognizes the best-exhibiting breed standard. However, Miller Bisher said that there are agility and obedience competitions at the Westminster Dog Show that should not to be missed.

“I love to watch the finals of agility. Agility is great in general, but agility finals are my favourite because of the passion, love, and energy that they exude. The audience can see it. 

Loyal Westminster watchers won’t miss a moment of the competition. Live streaming of the 2022 Westminster Dog Show’s events will be available at westminsterkennelclub.org, the WKC App, and FOX Sports App.
