Will you be watching Westminster? This year, the dog show will include the first-ever agility championship. I recently spoke with David Frei, the voice of Westminster, on DOG TRAVEL EXPERTS about both the dog show and the agility championship. Did you know that the agility competition will include mixed breed dogs and several rescues? I’m looking forward to watching both shows; I always learn something new every year about the many, many breeds that make up the dog world.
Here’s the schedule of this year’s broadcasts:
- Saturday, February 8 – 1st ever Masters Agility Championship at Westminster presented by Purina Pro Plan. Airing LIVE on FOX Sports 1 from 7-9 p.m. ET (check your local listings for the channel)
- Monday, February 10 – The Westminster Kennel Club 138th Annual All Breed Dog Show. Airing on CNBC from 8-11 p.m. ET
- Tuesday, February 11 – The Westminster Kennel Club 138th Annual All Breed Dog Show. Airing on the USA Network from 8-11 p.m. ET
- Live streaming All events can be found online for free at www.wkclive.com
Purina Pro Plan, the main title sponsor, is going for 8-straight Best in Show winners this year; the previous 7 winners have all been fed Purina Pro Plan. To celebrate, they’d like to give an 8-month supply of Purina Pro Plan to one lucky reader (and if they do get their 8th consecutive Best in Show Purina Pro Plan-fed dog, they will throw in a special basket with the 8-month supply of dog food to commemorate this achievement!) The food will be delivered as eight vouchers to be used at your local pet specialty store.
In a previous interview with David Frei, he shared that “the real Best In Show dog is the one sitting on the couch at home next to you.” Let’s celebrate that dog on the couch next to you with our own fun dog show!
