Obedience is a command-driven competition that tests a dog’s ability to comply with the asks of the handler. Commands can include a combination of sit, stay, jump, retrieve and scent discrimination. Purebred and All-American (mixed breed) dogs will compete to showcase the desired skills of a model dog.
The dogs entered at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show each competes within their own breed to be chosen as Best of their Breed/Variety. There are 211 AKC-recognized breeds and varieties.
Starting May 16, 2022 spectators will be able to pre-purchase online daytime tickets for the Saturday, June 18, Masters Agility Championship, and the 146th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show held Monday-Wednesday, June 20-22. As spectator parking is not available on the Lyndhurst grounds, you can purchase off-site parking as well.
