Plot Synopsis

Each year approximately 2500 dogs -- all of whom have attained the rank of champion -- compete in seven groups (Toy; Hound; Terrier; Herding; Working; Sporting; Non-Sporting) in a two-day event, and the seven group winners then vie for Best in Show during the evening of the second day. First held in 1877, the Westminster Kennel Dog Show is America's second-longest continuously held sporting event, second only to The Kentucky Derby. Westminster was first telecast in 1948 with Ch. Rock Ridge Night Rocket, a Bedlington Terrier, selected as Best in Show.
The 145th WESTMINSTER KENNEL CLUB DOG SHOW goes outdoors at Lyndhurst Estate in Tarrytown, New York. with live coverage on Saturday, June 12 and Sunday, June 13, 2021. No spectators or vendors are allowed to attend, because of the state's COVID-19 regulations. The show returns to New York City in 2022, where it had been held at Madison Square Garden (or its forerunner Gilmore's Garden) since 1877.
