Something unique and interesting about this year’s show was that it took place in 2 different venues in Manhattan on Monday, February 16th and Tuesday, February 17th. It was located at Pier 94 & Pier 92. At pier 94 they hosted the Agility contest which was very exciting and fun to watch as numerous different breeds were commanded to maneuver through a challenging obstacle course. The dogs had to follow the course going through hoops, jumping Over objects, traversing through, Crawling through tunnels and rings. It was incredible to watch the true agility of some of these precious and smart dogs. One could tell the hours that their trainers and (of course the dogs) put into Learning the various techniques.
To continue with the Westminster Dog show on Monday evening the Venue was held at Madison Square Garden. The first event consisted of The Hounds; It truly was interesting to see the control That the Dog Trainer/Owner had. (Yes, there was an inducement, THE TREATS). The precision in which the dogs pranced around was extremely fascinating to watch.
