Four new eligible varieties compete with their usual competitors for the best performance award
The annual Westminster Dog Show is back-but not in Madison Square Garden.
The 145th Westminster Dog Show Started on Friday, June 11, and will end on Sunday, June 13.
In change, it is held at the Riverside Estate in the suburb of Tarrytown.
The event is usually held in the famous Madison Square Garden in New York City, but the pandemic forced adjustments.
In addition, face-to-face audiences are not allowed.
“It’s heartbreaking because it’s definitely part of the prestige and nostalgia of going,” said agent Renee Rosamilla of Ocala, Florida.
“But to be honest, I’m very happy that they can give us Westminster this year.”
The Best Performance Award is the highest award given at the dog show.
The highly sought-after trophy will be awarded under a tent outside the Lyndhurst mansion in Tarrytown, rather than in the sports palace of MSG.
The show will also show four breeds that are eligible to participate in the competition for the first time-the Barbet, the Argentine Dogo, the Belgian Lucknow and the Bieville terrier.
