There's just something about the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Maybe it's the pageantry. Maybe it's the names. Maybe it's the breeds, and just how long they've been roaming this Earth.
Or maybe it's the VERY GOOD BOYS AND GIRLS DOING THEIR DOGGY THINGS.
Anyway, there's really nothing quite like it. And this week sees the return of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog show for its 144th iteration, from Madison Square Garden in New York City.
If you can't make it there in person — and it really is something you should see for yourself at some point — you can watch every single minute of the WKC Dog Show online, on your mobile device, or even on your TV.
The 144th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show schedule
There are too many breeds, too many groups, and too many dogs to get things done in a single day, so the competition is spread out over Feb. 10-11.
The televised portions don't start until 1 p.m. each day, and continue through 11 p.m., with the Best In Show award going out on Tuesday evening.
Here's the rundown of the schedule.
Monday, February 10
The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show will be shown live from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (that's Eastern time). Every single minute will be available on the the WKC website and WKC app (iOS and Android), and on the Fox Sports app (iOS and Android and supported streaming hardware). You'll get breed judging of the terrier, non-sporting and toy groups, and the junior handler preliminaries.
Monday's live telecast will be on FS2 from 1 to 3 p.m. Selected coverage of breed judging jumps to FS1 for a half-hour at 7 p.m., followed by pre-show programming until 11 p.m. That'll include the Hood, Toy, Non-Sporting and Herding group competitions.
Tuesday, February 11
The following day sees complete coverage all day again at the WKC website, app and Fox Sports app, and judging of the sporting and working breeds, and more junior handler prelims.
FS2 will have selected breed judging from 1 to 3 p.m. Eastern, with more pre-show events on FS1 from 7-7:30 p.m.
Then from 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. we'll get the Sporting, Working and Terrier group competitions, followed by Best In Show.
