Westminster’s First-Time Judges, plus Westminster Picks

Fifteen judges will step into the center of the ring for the very first time at this year’s Westminster Kennel Club dog show. Editor Susan Chaney introduces each and shares, in their own words, some of the many reasons this show has endured in the hearts of seasoned exhibitors and the general public alike. Meet the men and women who will carry on the tradition of selecting the dogs that will represent their breeds in the Groups at Madison Square Garden this year.

Billy Wheeler enjoys his numbers, so it should come as no surprise to readers that our Blogger-in-Chief is playing oddsmaker for this year’s Westminster. Seven dogs will enter this year’s Best in Show ring, and everyone’s got an opinion about the odds-on favorite to win each Group. Find out the names of Billy’s picks in today’s Back Story.

Be sure to check out our photo galleries, where you’ll find recent winners and candid photos from shows held near and far. Just click on Show Scene below the masthead banner, or select any of the images in the left-hand column of our home page.
