Welcome to the WKC News Media Center

Dear News Media,

The safety and wellbeing of all participants in the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show will always be our top priority. Due to the extraordinary spread of the Omicron variant in New York City at this time and the disruptions it is currently creating in travel and event management, the Board of Governors of the Westminster Kennel Club has made the difficult decision to postpone our January 2022 show until a later date in 2022.

We will keep you advised of our plans for the 2022 show as they evolve and appreciate your continued interest and support. The credential application process will start over once the event details are confirmed.


Chat Reynders
President, Westminster Kennel Club
