TWO NEW BREEDS WILL MAKE THEIR DEBUT AT
THE 2019 WESTMINSTER KENNEL CLUB DOG SHOW
AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN
 
Grand Basset Griffon Vendéen And Nederlandse Kooikerhondje Will Compete For The First Time Ever In The 143rd Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show
On Monday, February 11 And Tuesday, February 12, 2019
At The World's Most Famous Arena

TICKETS ON SALE NOW!
 
New York, NY (October 8, 2018) - The Madison Square Garden Company and the Westminster Kennel Club have announced that two new breeds, the Grand Basset Griffon Vendéen and the Nederlandse Kooikerhondje, will compete for the very first time at the 143rd Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show when it returns to The World's Most Famous Arena on Monday, February 11 and Tuesday, February 12, 2019.Tickets for the events at Madison Square Garden are on sale now.
 
Debuting at the 2019 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, the Grand Basset Griffon Vendéen, more affectionately known as the "GBGV" or "Grand," first appeared as early as the end of the 19th century in the region of Vendéen in France. Primarily a pack hunter in their native homeland and throughout Europe, the GBGV is capable of hunting a wide variety of game from the rabbit to wild boar. It is favored as a hunter, companion and friend to those willing to take the time to nurture and appreciate the characteristics that make the Grand Basset Griffon Vendéen a unique breed.
 
Also competing for the first time this year is the Nederlandse Kooikerhondje. For centuries, the agile little orange-red and white dog from Holland has used their gaily waving tail to lure ducks in an elaborate pond trapping system called "Eendenkooi." The breed was saved from extinction in 1939 by the Baroness von Hardenbroek von Ammerstol and the breed's foundation litter was born in 1942. The "Kooiker" competes in agility, obedience/rally, barn hunt and flyball with enthusiastic cheerfulness, but is also content to share a favorite sofa with their owner.
 
"The first year of eligibility to enter Westminster is a historic milestone for breeds," said Gail Miller Bisher, director of communications, Westminster Kennel Club. "We congratulate these two breed clubs for earning American Kennel Club recognition. We look forward to welcoming their Best in Breed winners in February when they make history competing on the green carpet at Madison Square Garden for the first time."
 
Tickets for the events at Madison Square Garden are on sale now and can be purchased online at www.msg.com, Ticketmaster at 1-866-858-0008 or the Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall and Beacon Theatre box offices.

LEGENDARY DOG HANDLER TO DETERMINE BEST IN SHOW

AT 143RD WESTMINSTER KENNEL CLUB DOG SHOW

Peter J. Green Headlines Judging Panel

for Westminster Week 2019

New York, NY - Mr. Peter J. Green of Bowmansville, Pennsylvania has been selected for the ultimate judging assignment in the sport of dogs, Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Held on Feb. 11 and 12, 2019, "America's Dog Show" will attract up to 2800 dogs all vying for the Best in Show win. Mr. Green, an owner, breeder and professional handler with 60 years of experience in the sport, will make that final decision on the floor of Madison

Square Garden.

 

A native of Neath, Wales, Mr. Green started showing dogs as a boy in 1946. He was introduced to the sport by his uncle who owned Felstead kennels and was a renowned Welsh terrier breeder. Mr. Green emigrated to the U.S. permanently in 1963 andwas a private handler for Pool

Forgekennels in Churchtown, Pennsylvania.

 

After years of honing his craft of maintaining a proper terrier coat and handling dogs to top wins, he launched a long and storied career as a professional handler in 1966. Mr. Green is recognized by many as the most accomplished dog handler in the sport today. During his career as a professional handler he tied the record for a handler achieving four Best in Show victories at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show (1968, 1977, 1994, and 1998). He also won Best in Show at Crufts in Birmingham (2005), England, the largest dog show in the world, making him one of only two handlers to steer a dog to Best in Show at both Westminster and Crufts. Additionally, he piloted dogs to Best in Show wins nine times at the highly-competitive, Montgomery County Kennel Club Terrier Show in Pennsylvania.

 

In addition to setting records, Mr. Green has impacted the sport by mentoring many of the top winning handlers dominating the dog show rings today. Achievements of several of these handlers include going Best in Show and winning groups at Westminster.

 

Although known as a tough competitor in the ring, Mr. Green is highly recognized in the sport and by the fancy as always lending a helping hand to support the dog show community and its events. The sport has in turn honored him with numerous top handler awards throughout his career and presented him the AKC Lifetime Achievement Award and Dogs in Review Lifetime Achievement Award.Known not only as an expert in the world of terriers but also in canine conformation, Mr. Green retired from professional handling in 2006 to begin his judging career which has taken him around the world. In 2019 his Westminster judging assignment will produce another record, as he will become the only person to have handled a dog to Best in Show and judged Best in Show at both Westminster and Crufts. Next February will be his seventh judging assignment at Westminster including judging the Terrier group in 2009.

 

Mr. Green will be awarding the Best in Show ribbon to one of the seven group-winning dogs sent to him by a star-studded line up of group judges. The group judging held at Madison Square Garden the evening of Monday, Feb. 11th will be officiated by Ms. Patricia Craige Trotter of Carmel, California for the Hound group; Ms. Sharon Newcomb of Sante Fe, New Mexico for the Toy group; Mr. Mark R. Kennedy of Murrysville, Pennsylvania for the Non-Sporting group; and Ms. Peggy Beisel-McIlwaine of Ann Arbor, Michigan, for the Herding group.

 

On Tuesday, Feb. 12th the group judges will be Mr. Douglas Johnson of Bloomington, Indiana for the Sporting group; Mr. James Moses of Wentzville, Missouri for the Working group; and Ms. Christine Erickson of Mesa, Arizona for the Terrier group.

 

For the 86th year, a Best Junior Handler will be awarded at Westminster. On Tuesday, Feb. 12th Ms. Angela Lloyd of Amissville, Virginia will select the winner at Madison Square Garden. The eight junior showmanship finalists will be determined in preliminary rounds by Ms. Victoria R. Seiler-Cushman of Beavercreek, Ohio, and Dr. Donald Sturz of Centerport, New York.

 

Presiding over the 6th Annual Masters Agility Championship at Westminster on Saturday, Feb. 9th will be Ms. Christine Bishop of Port Charlotte, Florida and Mr. Steve Croxford of Leicestershire, United Kingdom.

 

Ms. Diane Schultz of Ormond Beach, Florida will determine the winner of the 4th Annual Masters Obedience Championship at Westminster on Monday, Feb. 11th.

 

All daytime preliminary breed and junior showmanship judging, agility and obedience competitions will be held at Piers 92 and 94 in New York City. All Westminster Week events are presented by Purina Pro Plan®.

Pratt Institute Student Jenna Chi's Work Chosen as Dog Show Poster
 
New York, N.Y. - The Westminster Kennel Club, partnering for the first time with Pratt Institute for its annual art contest, is pleased to announce that the winning graphic design "German Shepherd" belongs to student Jenna Chi. The contest was open to students and alumni of the Pratt Institute. Entrants were asked to submit a graphic design to commemorate the 142nd Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show held from Feb. 12 - 13, 2018.
 
Chi, of Brooklyn, New York, was born and raised in Taiwan, Taipei. Chi knew since she was 5-years-old that she wanted to be an artist. She made her way to New York City to pursue an art education and is currently a junior at Pratt Institute pursuing a communication design major with a concentration in graphic design. Her winning idea was to re-create the concept of putting main characters on a movie poster. She selected photos from different breeds and sports to represent the diversity of canines that attend the event. Chi's winning graphic design will become the commemorative poster and Official Program cover and will join other finalists' works on a set of notecards. Her work can be found at Jennachidesign.com.
