The Westminster Kennel Club dog show has a rich history as the most prestigious dog event in America. Every year thousands of dedicated breeders, owners and handlers make their way to New York City in the hopes of winning at this premiere event.

Before they make it to Westminster however, there are countless hours of training grooming and travel as they work to earn championship titles, qualifying wins and top rankings.

Throughout the year we will be visiting dog shows, agility and obedience trials across the country to introduce you to some of these dedicated people as they travel on their Road To Westminster…

Share Your Road To Westminster Story

The Westminster Kennel Club production team is traveling across the country to shows and trials each month but we understand that there is simply no way to capture all the stories of exhibitors on the Road to Westminster. That’s why we want you to upload your photos and video clips of special wins, special dogs, and special Westminster memories! We would love to see how you’re doing at dog events every weekend so please post your photos or videos on WKC social accounts as you travel on Your Road to Westminster!
