NEW YORK – The Westminster Kennel Club welcomes 204 breeds and varieties among 2,630 entries from 49 states and 19 other countries to its expanded three-day dog show featuring the top three breeds per day—Dachshunds, Poodles, and Golden Retrievers—at Pier 94 in New York City from Sunday to Tuesday, Feb. 9-11, 2020. America’s longest continuously held dog show culminates with Best in Show awarded Tuesday evening during the live three-hour broadcast on FS1 from Madison Square Garden.
Westminster Week kicks off with the Masters Agility Championship on Saturday, Feb. 8, 2020 with 330 entries followed by the iconic, all-breed, benched dog show including the Junior Showmanship competition with 108 entries. The Masters Obedience Championship with 22 entries will be held on Sunday, Feb. 9, 2020.
Dachshunds dominate on Sunday with 55 entries (all varieties) during the Hound breeds judging. Historically bred to hunt badgers because of their tenacious hunting spirit and good nose, today’s dogs excel at assisting police with tracking duties and competing with their owners in Earthdog events.
Poodles are paramount on Monday with 43 entries (all varieties) during the Non-Sporting and Toy breeds judging. Originally purpose-bred as a retrieving water dog, the Poodle still retains that job today as well as being a wonderful companion and superstar in the Obedience and Agility rings.
Golden Retrievers grab the top spot on Tuesday with 48 entries during the Sporting breeds judging. Preservation breeders of this traditional bird hunter and field worker are maintaining the breed’s unique characteristics which make them valuable in today’s society as heroes in search-and-rescue work, amazing comfort dogs in the aftermath of tragedy, and brilliant guide dogs for the blind.
Joining the Westminster roster of breeds for the first time is the Azawakh with 6 entries. This slender sighthound and ancient companion of desert-roaming nomads will debut on Sunday during the Hound breeds judging.

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
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®.
