If you’re a fan of the Westminster Kennel Club (WKC) annual dog show, you may have searched in vain for it this month. Like all gatherings, this event had to make some changes due to the pandemic.

What typically is a televised event in February, due to restrictions and safety protocols, was pushed forward to June. And, like all events that involve gatherings of people, this one could be subject to change if circumstances in the world shift. 

What You Need To Know

According the WKC’s press release, the 145th annual event will take place June 12-13th in Tarrytown, New York. The event will be held at Lyndhurst, which is a property of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. 

Westminster Kennel Club President Charlton Reynders III said that the venue was chosen because it “allows us to hold a dog show safely while following current social distancing guidelines and public health regulations.”

How You Can Watch

Attendance will be limited despite the “wide-open outdoor space” of the venue, but the WKC’s website recommends you check back as the event nears. 

However, if attending in person isn’t on your to do list, consider tuning in to Fox Sports Network. They will be covering the event. And, the Best In Show competition will be shown live for the first time this year on Fox.

Schedule of Events

  • Masters Agility Championship on Friday, June 11, 2021 
  • Junior Showmanship, Breed, Group, and Best in Show judging on June 12 – 13, 2021
  • The Masters Obedience Championship will be on Sunday, June 13, 2021
