THE WESTMINSTER KENNEL CLUB
The Westminster Kennel Club, established in 1877, is America's oldest non-profit organization dedicated to the sport showing of dogs. The Club hosts the iconic Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, the second-longest continuously held sporting event in the U.S. and, since 1948, the longest nationally televised live dog show. Supporting canine health, members of the sport, and the dog world community are part of an ongoing tradition. The Club’s mission is to enhance the lives of all dogs by celebrating the companionship of dogs and promoting responsible dog ownership and breed preservation.
