The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is a favorite of dog lovers worldwide, showcasing some of the most beloved (and rarest) breeds in the world. Breed judging and benching will be at Pier 94 (this is also the site for the agility competition on February 8 and obedience competition on February 9), while junior showmanship finals along with group and best-in-show judging will take place evenings at Madison Square Garden. Roughly 3,000 dogs take part in the various competitions. For complete list of events and tickets, visit the Westminster website.
