Westminster Dog Show 2022

Westminster Dog Show 2022: The 2022 Westminster Kennel Club dog show is back this week after the canine competition was postponed from its usual winter date because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

For the second consecutive year, the Super Bowl of the dog world has relocated from Manhattan to the grounds of Lyndhurst estate in Tarrytown, New York.

The Westchester County venue will host thousands of dogs, owners, handlers and fans across 67 acres of greenery for the 146th Westminster Kennel Club dog show, which ends June 22 with the naming of best in show.

Almost 3,500 dogs will compete in Westminster week, including group judging, agility and obedience. At least 163 of those dogs will represent New Jersey in breed competition.

Golden retrievers are the most represented breed, followed by Labrador retrievers, pugs, Rhodesian ridgebacks and French bulldogs.

See below for a full schedule of Westminster events and a watch guide for both streaming and TV.

The Westminster Masters Agility Championship, the first event of Westminster week, will see dogs swiftly weave around poles, deftly navigate a series of hurdles and jumps, carefully balance on a seesaw and wildly careen through a tunnel to try for the quickest, cleanest runs.

In 2021, Verb, a border collie from Wyncote, Pennsylvania, won agility for the second time after first triumphing in 2019.

There are two ways to catch all the agility action:

The Westminster Kennel Club agility preliminaries will be livestreamed from 7:30 a.m. ET to 4 p.m. ET Saturday, June 18 at westminsterkennelclub.org.

The Westminster Masters Agility Championship finals will air from 12:30 p.m. ET to 3 p.m. ET Sunday, June 19 on Fox.

Westminster breed competition runs from 8 a.m. ET to 4:30 p.m. Monday, June 20, Tuesday, June 21 and Wednesday, June 22 and can be streamed live at westminsterkennelclub.org or watched on demand at the website.
