In May, 2500 dogs gathered in New York City. Why? To compete in the 148th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. It’s the biggest dog show in North America.

A perfect example

More than 200 dog breeds competed for Best in Show, from tiny chihuahuas to Great Danes. The three-stage competition starts at the breed level.
